Community Computer Access

Most of the computers in Joyner Library require an ECU username and password to use. This is to ensure students have access to computers, which they pay for with their technology fees, and provide security for the university’s network. There are a few options for visitors to ECU to use select computers, though, as explained below.

PC Reservation Passes

There are two (2) computers designated for use by community patrons on the first floor near the Security Desk. Community patrons may visit the Circulation desk with a valid driver license or other valid ID to request a PC Reservation pass to use those computers. The PC Reservation pass will allow community patrons one (1) hour of computer use per day. Other computers are available in the North Carolina Collection on the third floor and in the Federal Documents/Microforms area in the basement. All computer usage will be on a first-come basis and is subject to the library’s Computer Use Procedure.

Community Access Passes

Cooperative Borrowers, Educator Card holders, Friends of the Library, and ECU Lifelong Learners can receive a Community Access pass. The Community Access pass will provide a username and password to log onto computers in designated sections of Joyner Library and the Music Library. Community Access passes remain valid from the time they are issued until the library closes on Sunday of that week.

Due to a limited supply of Community Access passes, each patron will be issued only one pass per week. Patrons should keep their access pass safe, as the library cannot issue another pass until Monday of the following week. Patrons cannot share their passwords or use more than one computer at a time.

NOTE: All passes are issued at the Circulation Desk of Joyner Library. All computers have full access to the Library’s databases and resources.
