LIBRARY TECHNOLOGY ASSISTANCE
The Learning Commons provides a variety of desktop applications and peripherals for academic purposes. This equipment and software is supported by the
Student Technical Assistants service whose service goals are to assist patrons with beginning-to intermediate-level technical support issues. Given the number
of applications available, the Student Technical Assistants staff cannot provide advanced tech support on a walk-in basis. We will however endeavor to provide
referrals or arrange an appointment for you to meet with someone who may be more knowledgeable. The Student Technical Assistants will guide patrons, offer
advice on methods to maximize application functionality, and perform tasks as a demonstration of a function; however, staff will not complete a patron's work.
During busy periods at the desk, priority will be given to short and urgent problems over in-depth training. Patrons who are novices with a software package
should allow an appropriate amount of time to become familiar with the package and to complete their own work.
