The Matas Library offers a 24/7 quiet study space that provides computing, black & white and color printing, scanning, and VTS access to add funds to University IDs. This space offers several private group study rooms, tables and carrels with convenient electrical outlet access, PCs, laser printing, and a flat bed scanner. Ten of these computers host statistical software provided by the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine for after-hours use. When the library is closed, the after-hours area is entered by swiping your Tulane University ID card at the controlled access door in the 2nd floor hallway on the LaSalle side. ID cards must be activated by the security checkpoint in the lobby.
