In-house Adobe Software: PCs and Macs in the Digital Design Studio provide access to either Adobe Creative Cloud or Adobe Creative Suite 6. In addition, 2 computers in the 1st floor Learning Commons provide access to Adobe Creative Cloud. Library staff support for these programs will be extremely limited, but the computers in the Learning Commons will be available for current CSU students, faculty, and staff any time the Library is open.

    NOTE: Adobe Creative Cloud and all of its apps (e.g., Photoshop, Acrobat Pro, etc.) require users to sign in with an Adobe account. If you don't already have an Adobe account, you can create a free one by clicking the "Create an Account" link on the Adobe logon screen.
