Where can I get assistance with software?

Free non-credit computer workshops are offered in the Bailey Computer Lab each term to students, faculty, and staff on many of the above software packages, especially the Microsoft Office applications. Schedules for these classes will be posted in the Bailey Lab and on the Information Technology web page, and sign-up sheets will be posted in the Bailey Lab. Additional self-paced computer instruction videotapes are available from Information Technology and the Media Center.

The Computer Lab Manager is available at Ext. 1385 in the Bailey Lab 1:00 - 10:00 PM, Sunday through Thursday, to assist students and faculty with a wide variety of computer questions, ranging from the activating of e-mail accounts to the use of a color scanner. Individual training or assistance appointments with the Lab Manager can be scheduled, if needed. Computer assistance is also available by contacting IT.

Microsoft offers online training and assistance for its entire line of Office products, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Access, and Frontpage.
