From the 7/9/2014 Digest…
On Monday, July 14, Information Technology Services will begin deploying Microsoft and other third-party updates including Adobe Flash, Shockwave and Web browser IE 9. These updates will become mandatory on Friday, July 18, at 3:30 p.m. and will be automatically “pushed-out” to all University-owned computers at that time.
Depending upon which updates are needed by your computer, you may be required to restart yours after the updates are installed. After the installation of IE 9, your computer may need another update, which may require an additional reboot.
Please see Mike or Noah if you have any questions about these updates.
Some specialized software that the libraries do not have installed on the public workstations or that students don’t have installed on their personal machines is available via the university’s Virtual Lab.
Information about the university’s Virtual Lab is available from their site: http://www.uakron.edu/dts/virtual-lab/
The list of software available via the Virtual Lab is listed under Machine & Software Configuration.
Mark your calendars! IT will be hosting a training for hourly library employees from 10-11:30am on November 14, 2013 in Bierce 274.
This session is open to any hourly employee in the UL (including students). Our go-live date for hourly employees is November 18.
Other training opportunities for online timecards:
