Library Technology

The M. D. Anderson Library has over 300 computers divided between two labs for the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Houston. The Academic Research Center focuses on the research and study needs of patrons, while the Learning Commons caters to their high-end multimedia and collaborative study needs. A valid CougarNet account is required to use all computers in the library. A valid University I.D. is required to print in both labs and check out any equipment.
