New Library Laptops are Here!


ThinkPad Thanks to ITS, the library’s old laptops have been replaced with 10 new IBM ThinkPads.  Students may check one out at the main circulation desk for use in the library.  The checkout period is 4 hours.  Wireless is built-in, so they will work all over the building — on the terrace, in either reading room, in the group study rooms, or up in the stacks.   Library laptops cannot be taken outside of McCain Library. Students should login by hitting the Enter key at the first dialog box, then once you bring up Internet Explorer, you may login to Woof Woof Wi Fi.  If you wish to print something, please save it to a flash drive (also available for checkout at the circ desk) and print from a wired desktop later.

ASC faculty or staff may also borrow these laptops to use in the library.  They should ask for a purple network cable to be able to login to the campus network.  Data ports are available at the carrels in the reference area alongside the terrace.  Enjoy!
