Green Library Clusters - Lane Reading Room

Humanities and Area Studies Resource Center Computer Cluster

In the HASRC, at either end of the Lane Reading Room are Stanford-only computer clusters.

Lane room Kiosks: The Lane Room has four kiosk computers on either side of its main entrance and on the opposite wall. These machines provide quick access to Library catalogs, Folio databases, and Internet resources.

Lane room iMac cluster At either end of the Lane Room are computer clusters. There are 10 iMac machines equipped with a number of software applications that can be used for patron research production. A list of the applications installed on the machines in this room can be found here. All machines have CD-RW/DVD drives and USB ports to plug in flash (thumb) drives. A valid SUNet ID is required in order to gain access to the machines.

Middle East Kiosk: Patons will also find one Middle Eastern kiosk, which is located at the east end of the Lane Room. The Middle Eastern kiosk has Middle Eastern language input capabilities (Arabic, Persian, and Modern Turkish), for searching online indices (such as Eureka, the RLG bibliographic database), as well as programs in these languages that can be accessed by anyone. An example of one of these is called "The Encyclopedia of Islamic Jurisprudence." This program is all in Arabic, including the drop-down menus and the buttons.

Also among these computers is an IBM machine used to virtually tour the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. This machine however provides no email or web access, nor does it allow you to do any word processing.

Scan Stations: The Lane Reading room has two scan stations for patrons to use. The stations are located at either end of the reading room. Click here for a map of scanners in Green.

The scan station can only be accessed by those with a valid SUNet ID.

Software available for patrons to use is as follows:

  • Epson Scan
  • Image Capture (MacOS Only)
  • Additional software loaded on the scan stations can be found here-- PC|Mac)

Scanning documentation can be found next to the scan station.
