How do I use the wireless network?

2132 views   |   Last updated on Sep 22, 2017    Technology

Eduroam is the recommended secure wireless network available to students and employees throughout campus. This network is intended for most laptops, phones, and tablets that support WPA2-Enterprise/802.1x encryption. Most personally-owned devices will store login credentials and automatically connect when the network is within range. A benefit of using the Eduroam network is that your laptop or device should automatically connect and authenticate when you travel to another college or university that uses the system.

For technical assistance with configuring your personal device to use the eduroam wireless network, contact the campus Information Technology Service Desk at 315-445-4579 or email servicedesk@lemoyne.edu.

For more information about Eduroam or how to obtain guest access to the network, visit the Library's "College Wireless Network" guide.

Does library have a scanner?

1309 views   |   Last updated on Feb 05, 2016    Technology

There is a networked scanner in the Muserlian Teaching Lab. It is often busy, so plan accordingly. There are also several near the IT Service Desk.

However, your very best bet is to use the photocopier as a scanner. It is a simple matter to email your scanned document to yourself or save it to a USB thumb drive. Watch the video on how to scan using the photocopier.

Caveat: You need to put the photocopier into scan mode by first putting a dime into the coin box and changing the copy options from "Copy" to "Send". If you leave the copier in "Copy" mode, it will charge you $0.10 and will will make a paper copy. By changing the mode to "Send", you are telling the photocopier to scan but not print. You will not be charged for the scanning and the dime can be refunded after you are finished. Don't forget to get your dime back.

If you don't have any change, you can get a scanner dime from the IT Service Desk. The Library Service Desk does not have change. For technical assistance, visit the IT Service Desk.

How do I download an EBL book to my smartphone or tablet PC?

1150 views   |   Last updated on Feb 05, 2016    Finding Books Research Help Technology

The EBL e-book collection allows readers to checkout PDF or ePUB formatted e-book files which can be downloaded to your desktop or laptop computer or to tablet PCs, e-book readers, and smartphones, such as the iPad, Android tablets, newer Nook readers, and Sony e-book readers, and other devices that have readers that support the Adobe Digital Editions copyright protection protocol.

It is easy to read books from the EBL e-book collection on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch.

However, because the EBL e-books are all protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) software from Adobe Digital Editions, you need to do two things to set things up properly.

  1. Download an e-book reader for your iPad that can display DRM-protected materials. EBL recommends theBluefire Reader, which is free from the iTunes store.

  2. You must have an Adobe ID set up in your Bluefire reader in order to open and read EBL e-books. Register for a free Adobe ID at http://adobe.com/membership. The first time you use Bluefire, it will ask you for your Adobe ID and password, so make a record of it when you create it.

Once logged in to the EBL collection, find the book you want to read, click the download button, and start reading. See the video tutorial for an overview.

Loan periods for each book are 7 days. When the loan period of the e-book has expired, Bluefire will display the message: "No license found". To continue reading the book, you must delete it from Bluefire and download it from EBL again.

Can I print from a Library workstation?

1114 views   |   Last updated on Sep 22, 2017    Printing Technology

Most of the workstations in the Library can print to the networked printers using your free print quota. To access these workstations, you must first log in using your campus network username and password.

Seven of the eight stand-up Library workstations nearest the entrance on the first floor, across from the Library Service Desk, can print to the printers adjacent to them. The other workstation, which is for guest access and requires no login, is for quick look-ups and is blocked from printing.

In addition, all of the computers in the IT computer cluster at the back of the library and in the Muserlian Instructional Lab are set up to print to nearby networked printers.

For more detailed instructions, visit the "Printing in the Library" help guide. For technical assistance, contact the IT Service Desk or call (315) 445-4579.

832 views   |   Last updated on Oct 14, 2016    Finding Articles Research Help

Most of the research materials, including databases, e-journals, e-books, streaming video and audio, etc., that the Library subscribes to are available off-campus to members of the Le Moyne campus community.

Once you have logged in, you will be able to access the resource as though you were on-campus.

For more information, read the "Off-Campus Access" help guide. There you will also find a handy bookmarklet that you can use to push the page you're on through the proxy server.
