Katrina Anniversary

Two of the three tech problems from yesterday have been solved and the third one is not our problem it's our vendor, TDNet's, problem. Yeah!

The most frequently asked question at the Ref Desk the past few days is, "Where can I find a computer to print out my paper, or print powerpoint slides, or do my psychology online homework." We have to tell these students that we don't have any of the software they need on our Library computers--only browsers and a couple of readers--Acrobat, Quicktime, Flash--but no speakers. Students, please check out the computer labs in your major departments. SOUTHpaw lab is on the 1st floor of the Student Center and if you have paid any kind of computer fee, check out the labs in the Computer Center which are open when there are no classes scheduled in them. We are so sorry we can't help you here.

The anniversary of Katrina is Tuesday. If you have any really good photos of the hurricane and its aftermath--send them to me. I'm going to try to put together a slide show to be shown in the Library Auditorium, or maybe the plasma screen across from the Circ desk, on Tuesday.
