Using Library/Computer Lab Computers

Registered students, staff & faculty members need a User Account to log on to the networked computers in the Library and Computer Lab. The Irvine campus also have wireless. Please contact Ali Razavi in Room 311 if you have problems with your user account or student computers.

Printing and copying is available from the Library/Lab computers. The cost is $0.10/page for black & white, or $0.40/page for color. You can print by putting money on your student ID card, or blank media cards are available for purchase for $1.00.

Pro-Tips: Make sure to have cash (bills only) to load money on your ID card. When sending jobs to the printer, make sure to doublecheck the printer name. It should end with "bw" for black & white jobs or "color" for color jobs.

About the Irvine IRC

The Information Resource Center (IRC) is your gateway to the Alliant Library at Irvine. It houses a collection of books and other materials focusing on the subjects of clinical and forensics psychology, family therapy, education and multiculturalism. You also have access to the university's entire collection of print and electronic resources. We also have computer stations, printing, and study space available for student use.

Borrowing Materials

A current Alliant Identification card (I.D. card) with 14-digit library barcode is recommended to check out items. See Ali Razavi in Room 311 to pick up your card. Once you have your ID card please stop by the library to activate your account or fill out the account activation form on the library’s home page.
