Stop Icon Do not save your files on library computers. 
Files saved on library computers get erased after you log off
or when your time limit expires.

Save your files to a USB drive (USB extension cables are near the keyboard) or save files "temporarily" to the desktop and email them to yourself. 

But remember, once you log off the computer (or your time limit is reached) you lose your information -- so be sure to save your work often. 

USB IconIf you forgot your USB drive, you can check one out at the circulation desk.
