The software on all Windows XP workstations in the Learning Commons is currently being updated. All applications will have the latest service packs, patches, updates, versions etc to ensure visitors enjoy a smooth, productive experience. A list of the most popular productivity software and versions can be found on the Learning Commons page. In addition to these many more useful applications are also available.
The visual appeal of the desktop has also been improved with a crisp, clean wallpaper utilizing the Dalhousie colours. Shortcuts to all applications are organized within folders so they are easier to locate. Links are provided to the most popular web based services. A brand new feature on the desktop is a link to Live Help – an online chat based reference service provided by Novanet Libraries. This service is designed to respond to brief questions that can be answered quickly and effectively using online resources.
All updates are expected to be completed early next week. As always if you have any suggestions about how our machines could be further improved don’t hesitate to let us know.
