When using Library computers, you are free to bring in files and open them for editing, or create new files and save them. Here are the options and limitations:

  • You can open files from or save files to:
    • USB drives (also known as thumb drives or flash drives)
    • web-based email accounts
    • Some branches also have portable 3.5 inch disk drives for use (limited availability; ask at the information desk if they are available in your location)
  • Files cannot be saved to or opened from a CD.
  • Files created using Word Perfect cannot be opened, unless they have been saved as an RTF or TXT file.
  • If you need to attach a file that you have created to an email message in a web-based email account, save the file to the folder on the computer called "Word." You must provide your own email account.
  • Any files save to the computer's temporary "Word" folder will be deleted after you log out.
