The Arnold Library hosts the Shared Resources & Scholarly Communications Computer Lab on the first floor of the Weintraub building.

The Computer Lab exists to support research, publishing and extend the scholarly communications toolkit available to Fred Hutch investigators and students by offering access to specialized or high-demand applications and computer hardware.

The Lab is open 24/7 to all FHCRC faculty, students and staff.

Web Terminals

Visitors can remotely access their email and any other web-based information by utilizing one of our two web workstation computers.  These dedicated computers do not require a log-in and are not password protected. 

PCs and Scanners

The library also provides seven PCs, four equipped with Windows 7 and three with Windows 10, which include not only the Microsoft Office suite, but also more research-specific software.  These computers have restricted access and require a HutchNet ID.  One of the PCs has scanning abilities via a flatbed scanner.  USB storage devices can also be used on these machines.

MACs and Scanners

MAC users can access any of the nine MAC desktops available in the library.  These computers run OSX and, similar to the PCs, provide access to the internet, research databases, and scientific software.  Two of the Macs are connected to scanners.


All of the computers in the library are networked to both color and black and white printers.


Computers in the Lab offer a wide variety of software, including:

  • general productivity (MS Office, Acrobat Pro, etc.)
  • multimedia design and editing tools (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, etc.)
  • applications used to analyze and visualize data from specific Shared Resources' equipment and instruments (GeneMapper, FlowJo, Aperio Imagescope, etc.)

A complete list of all software available in the lab is maintained by the library at: Software List
