As students’ needs change with advancing technology, the library makes changes too. The library is offering new services, including a printing computer station and file conversion assistance.

For students with printer problems or just in need of printing a paper on-the-go, the library set up a Print and Go Express computer center. “Students have been requesting a quick way to print documents during the passing period—a computer work station where you don’t have to wait three to four minutes for the network to log you in and load your desktop,” said Library Director Mrs. Kathy Krepps.

In order to uphold the values of “print and go,” students should bring their assignments on flash drives. “The entire process takes less than a minute,” Krepps said, as long as students have the flash drive prepared.

The computer is located in Library North. Upon entering the main doors of the library, turn right immediately, and it is the last computer at the end of its row against the wall.

Librarians can also help students convert files from their flash drives. “While it is each student’s responsibility to save their school documents in a PC-friendly format, mistakes happen,” Krepps said.

Students with Mac computers may have difficulty saving iWorks documents to PC Microsoft Word at school. “Results from this year’s freshman survey indicate that 56 percent use Macs for their schoolwork,” Krepps said. The survey showed that this number has increased from 51 percent last year.

With these new services available, students can start the year off right by going to the library instead of enduring printer issues or software incompatibility problems.
