New Wireless Access Points

Submitted by Howie McCausland
We have just completed installing Wireless Access Points to provide full coverage throughout Coffrin and Stewart dorms, and have installed an extensive new network infrastructure (wired, and wireless) throughout the newly-renovated Proctor to support the new expanded College Book Store.
Good wireless signal is now available in about 90% of campus building interior spaces, as shown on the accompanying map.

Help Save the Yellow Cables

The Cable Lady 003

Submitted by Elin Waagen

The popular LIS Yellow Cable Program (borrow a cable; put one back) is on the threatened species list. Please return any yellow cables you see floating around work and public spaces to the Circulation Desks at any of the Libraries.
Pictured here is the famous Yellow Cable Hero in full action! Many thanks to Amy Hoffman for picking up cables on her daily walks around the Main Library.

Wireless Access Locations Update

The Campus Map application has been updated with all of the new wireless access points added over the last several months. This is a long overdue update on my part, but I’m happy to say that I’m now receiving a list of spots to add as they’re added from Petar Mitrevski, a Computing Specialist with the Helpdesk staff. The excellent work done by Facilities Services and Systems and Network Infrastructure to get these new wireless locations up and running should also not escape notice. Here’s a list of the additions:
