Knight Library Learning Commons Computers


The Knight Library Learning Commons computers are part of the UO Libraries Learning Commons at the University of Oregon. You can find these computers throughout the building of the Knight Library.

Computers are available to all current faculty, staff, and students of the UO. They require users to login with a valid Duck ID.

Internet Only Kiosks are available to members of the general public for quick use of the Internet and to provide access to LibrarySearch and library electronic resources, such as databases, electronic journals and e-books. General public are those users of the Library who are not UO students, faculty, emerit, and staff.
