* To further understand your
responsibilities regarding the use of this computer lab, please read:
IT Acceptable Use Policy.
- This facility is for Chemistry academic work only.
This means that if you are working on materials as a T.A. for a course or are a student
taking a chemistry course, you are welcome here.
If you are working on research other than Directed-Studies, you should be using your
research group's facilities.
Non-chemistry related coursework should also be done in a different computing
facility (contact your course Instructor to find out where).
If you are in an Organic Chemistry 2301\2302\2311 or 1xxx level
chemistry class, your computing needs should be facilitated elsewhere such as
103 Walter Library.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
- We will not be held responsible for any data loss. Please
maintain your own backups of your valued files elsewhere. All media storage solutions are
vulnerable to errors. Malware is a problem in the Microlab no matter how vigilant we are.
The Microlab workstations have their hard drives wiped on a regular (at least daily) basis.
- Printing in the Microlab is limited to courses offered by the
Chemistry department (ChemXXXX) and is free of charge. Please do not abuse our free
printing policy. Printouts are monitored by Microlab staff and non-coursework printouts are
subject to confiscation.
- If Microlab computers or printers are malfunctioning, do not attempt
to service or alter them (i.e. add paper, fix a paper jam, install software). The Chemistry
Department has hired Teaching Assistants to facilitate the maintenance of the computer lab.
Let them do their job. Do not put yourself in a position to be held accountable for possible
damages to our facilities.
- Food and beverages are permitted in the computer lab if
you clean up after yourself.
We reserve the right to revoke privileges to people who demonstrate
repetitive abuse of lab policies, facilities, or staff.
If you have any questions, ask the Computer Lab Teaching Assistant on duty. If you have any
suggestions, comments, or feedback on how we can improve the lab or its policies, please
contact the Computer-Assisted Instruction Manager. The office is in 101E Smith Hall, just
inside the Microlab's main door.
