Computers

The LRC Computer Commons open lab has 50 imac and 49 PC thin client computer workstations available for student use. The computer workstations include individual and group workstations. Currently enrolled SBCC students can use a computer workstation in the open lab by presenting their SBCC student ID or K number at the front desk and checking into a computer. Three stand up computer stations require no check in and are available in the middle of the open lab. All computer workstations require log in using a pipeline username and password. Personal computers cannot be connected to the LRC network for internet access.

 

Computer Tutoring

Computer Tutors provide tutoring as needed support to students within in the LRC Computer Commons. Students can ask for help directly at the Computer Help Desk or place the help sign at their workstation on top of their computer. Computer Tutors can assist with questions related to using the computers, using the operating system, using software programs (e.g., formatting Word documents), and printing. 

 

Disability Services and Programs for Students (DSPS)

There are two DSPS PC desktop workstations located within the LRC Computer Commons installed with learning assistance software and are equipped with flatbed scanners. Students wishing to use DSPS stations in the LRC must to be trained to use the software at DSPS Lab in Room SS-160 prior using the DSPS workstations at the LRC.

 Saving Files and Backing Up Files

Students can save their digital files to a flash drive, cloud storage, and/or e-mail their files to themselves. Students are responsible for saving and maintaining their files. We encourage students to save their work frequently and to create back-ups copies of any critical files. The LRC Commons is an open lab environment, and as such, all user files will be deleted from the local computer upon log off. In other words, files saved to the desktop, documents, or downloads folders will be deleted when the student logs off or shortly thereafter.

 

Printing

B&W and color printing is available from any of the LRC computer workstations using the Uniflow Multi-function Canon printers. Black and white printing costs .10 cents per page. Color printing costs .25 cents per page. A quick start guide with instructions on how to use the printer is available here.

 

Paying for Printing

To pay for print jobs, students must add funds to their SBCC student ID within their Campus Card Flex account. Follow these step-by-step instructions here to learn how to add funds to your campus card account. Personal computers cannot be connected to the LRC printers for printing.

 

Copying

Students can make copies using the Uniflow Multi-function Canon printer. Copies cost .10 cents per page.

 

Scanning

Students can scan documents and send these files to themselves using the Scan and Send feature within the Uniflow Multi-function printer. Quick start instructions are available here. Additionally, each DSPS workstation has a flatbed photo scanner for student use. Any student can use a DSPS station but DSPS students have priority.There is no charge for scanning files.
