The Poynter Library Information Commons currently provides computing services through access to MS Office suite of desktop publishing tools including MS Word, PowerPoint, and other applications most commonly requested by faculty and students of USF St. Petersburg campus.  Computers in this area are managed by NetID, allowing access only to currently registered students, faculty and staff. In addition to the desktop publishing tools, these computers also provide access to USF Libraries Databases, BlackBoard, and the Internet. Network-based color and black & white printing and copying are also available.

Supported exclusively by the Nelson Poynter Library Systems Office, the Information Commons’ primary goal is to provide access to the library’s print and electronic materials and services. Requests for software applications and configurations that are not compatible will be redirected to the Office of Campus Computing. Instructional support extends only to library-specific applications. Students will need to contact their instructor for course-specific software support.
