Public Computers Are Back at the Library

Woohoo! Another happy milestone in Cornell’s progress back to the (post-COVID) future has been reached. Public computers are available again at Cornell’s libraries, Mann included. We’re pretty sure that’s welcome news to those of you spending this scorcher of a summer with us here in Ithaca—no more lugging that laptop around in the heat.   A couple of caveats to go with that good news, just so we’re all on the same page:
  • CU-Print software has NOT yet been installed on the public desktops. So if you anticipate needing to print while you are in the Library, you’ll still need to haul that laptop along. (We’ll be installing the CU-Print software as soon as CIT provides it.)

  • Planning to use an Adobe product on one of our public computers? Adobe software licensing now requires users to log in with an Adobe ID.  Adobe IDs are free and instructions for creating or updating an Adobe ID can be found here: If you run into problems with that or need further instructions from Cornell, you can contact the IT@Cornell help service at

More good news about services and facilities at the Library will be coming over the weeks ahead. Stay tuned via our news page–and do drop by the library when you get the chance. We’ll be happy to see you!
