CBC students have several computer labs and other electronic resources available to assist them in meeting their academic needs.
The library has over 75 desktop computers available for current student use on the Pasco campus and 36 on the Richland Health Science Center campus. To discourage waste and to recover some of the cost of paper, toner, and printer maintenance, a charge of $.05 per page for black & white copies and $.25 per page for color copies will be assessed for printing of full-text articles, emails, assignments, web pages, etc. For more information, go to Library Open Computing Resources.
