Software On Public Computers

The UCR Library has over 400 public computers among the four campus libraries. We provide high demand software to support and enhance student learning, and data necessary to support an information commons environment. For more assistance using Microsoft Office, please see our MS Office Help page.

All the Library public computers are equipped with the software listed in the basic section. In addition, specialized software has been installed on the Learning Commons Computers located in Rivera Library 1st Floor, Rivera Basement, Rivera 2nd Floor, Rivera 3rd Floor, and Science Library 1st Floor.
