Jessie Ball duPont Library: Computer Use, Printing, Wireless Access

The Jessie Ball duPont Library at the University of the South, Sewanee, TN, offers an extensive range of resources and services to support teaching and learning.

Library Computer Use

Computers with access to the Internet are available on all floors of the library.  The computers are provided primarily for the use of University of the South students, faculty, and staff for the purpose of academic research, and for users of federal government information in electronic format. Such persons will be given preference over all other users. The Library reserves the right to limit the amount of time an individual user can devote to a single session. Use of Academic Technology Center computers and facilities, which are located on the ground floor of the library, are limited to university students, staff, and faculty. We ask that persons not affiliated with the University use computers on the main and second floors of the library located close to the central elevator.

Access to all computers is granted via individual login. Persons affiliated with the University will use their email user name and their Banner password to log on to a computer. If you are not affiliated with the University, you may check at the Circulation Desk for a guest login.  Individuals under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign their application, just as with library cards. All computer users must adhere to the posted University guidelines and policies for computer usage.


Printing in the Library

Printing is available from every computer in the library. Faculty, staff, and students can print black and white pages at no charge and color printing is available with staff assistance at the Circulation desk for $1.00 per page. Persons not affiliated with the University are charged $.15 per page for printing black and white pages and color prints are $1.00 per page. For persons not affiliated with the University, please send your document to and the staff at the desk will print your document.

A Note about Printing Behavior
We encourage library users to carefully monitor their printing. Please do not be wasteful- print only what you actually need. Our printers print double-sided by default in order to conserve paper. If there is a problem with a printer, please consult Help Desk staff immediately, and do not repeatedly send print jobs to the printer. Your attention to these small, but important, items can help reduce our paper and energy consumption.

Wireless Access in the Library: Students, Faculty, and Staff

All users must register for wireless network access. Students, faculty, and staff should only have to do this once with each wireless device (see instructions below). Guests should connect to the "Sewanee-Open" network, and follow the instructions (see below) for creating an account.

Wireless Access and Registration: Sewanee Students, Faculty, and Staff

  • Select the "Sewanee-Open" wireless network, and open a web browser if one does not automatically open. PC users may see a dialogue box that prompts them to click to open a browser.
  • On the wireless web site that opens, click on the link to configure your computer for secure access.
  • Click the “Start” button on the resulting screen ("Sewanee Secured Configuration Utility"), and follow the instructions to download and run the Aruba Quick Connect Application. You will only have to do this once.
  • Your user name is your email address without the “,” and your password is your Banner password (PIN). For some Mac users, you will also need to enter your admin password- this is your computer password.
  • Once the password has been authenticated, click Connect.
  • Check to see if your computer is connected to the "Sewanee-Secured" network. If not, change from the Open to Secure network.
