ArcGIS Pro on Library Computers

ArcGIS Pro in the Library

ArcGIS Pro is installed on computers in the Information Commons, Farber 101 and Goldfarb 230 computer classrooms, and the Digital Scholarship Lab. Contact our MakerLab team if you would like access to the Digital Scholarship Lab. 

Sign out on Public Computers

Make sure you sign out of ArcGIS Pro once you are finished using the software to ensure that other users don't have accidental access to your ArcGIS account.
