Do you get frustrated trying to find an open computer to use on the main campus?  Have you ever sprinted to one of the computer labs during the few minutes between classes, desperate to print out an assignment, only to find that all computers there were full?

We can help!

This semester, the Pollak Library and the Division of Information Technology have teamed up to offer Cal State Fullerton students a cool new tool — a Computer Availability app. ┬áThis app tracks how many computers are available in each of the five computer labs that make up the Information Learning Commons: Titan Lab, McCarthy Commons, the 1st and 2nd floors of Pollak Library North, and the 1st floor of Pollak Library South.

If you are inside the Library, you can check out a live stream at the Reference Desk or on the flat screen TV in the first floor Atrium.

You can also access the web app from any computer directly at: http://mobile.fullerton.edu/computeravailability.

If you have a web-enabled mobile phone with a QR Code Reader, simply point your phone’s camera at this QR code to access the web app on your mobile phone.
