There are over 70 computers available for patron use. There is an open computer lab on the 3rd floor, and additional computers are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors.

Wireless Internet Access

The Library has wireless internet access. Please feel free to bring in your own wireless device and connect by logging in with your Northeast State username and password.

Print/Copy Allowance

Each semester, students receive a print/copy allowance of $30. These funds are attached to your network computer account and allow you to print and photocopy. Once the funds are used up, students must go to the Business Office on the first floor of the Pierce Building to add more money to their accounts.  Students in Kingsport can add funds at the Business Office in Blazer-Wilson Hall, while students in Gray and Elizabethton can check at the front desk for who can do this at those locations. 


All the computers in the Library have printing capabilities. Printing costs $0.10 a page for standard black and white and $0.25 a page for color. All printing charges are deducted from your print/copy allowance. Computers on the second floor will print black and white copies to the printer in room L201A (photocopier room).  All of the computers on the third floor will print in room L302.  These computers default to color printing; if you only want black and white, you can select black and white in the properties before printing or you can choose the black and white printer available in L302. Color copies will only print in L302. 

Automatic double-sided printing is not available in the library.  If you need to print a double-sided brochure, please see a librarian at the Information and Research Help Desk on the third floor for assistance.


The Library has one photocopier available for patron use, on the second floor. Copies cost $0.10 each and are deducted from your print/copy allowance.


Four scanners are available in the open lab on the third floor (Room L302), two flat-bed and two document fed.
