POLICIES & PROCEDURES


The Board of Directors has implemented the following policy:   Please limit the use of a computer for individual or training use to one hour. We ask that members be aware of and courteous to other members and volunteers. The volunteers on duty have discretion to extend that period if no one is waiting to use that computer. 

Volunteers are asked to start all computers when they open the Resource Center in the morning. Remember to log onto Windows by entering the password The User Id and the Password are the same as the computer's "name". If you don't log onto Windows, the network will not be accessible. Please be sure to power down all computers using the switch(s) oh the attendant surge protectors/power strips.

Volunteers in the morning shift, please make sure that when the door is unlocked, it is re-locked before the key is removed. If you don't have a key, remember the TCL staff will be happy to unlock our door for you.Afternoon shift volunteers are responsible for making sure the door is locked before they leave.

Saturday morning volunteers are responsible for making sure the TCLC front door is locked when they leave the building, even though there may be faculty and/or students remaining in the building.

Morning shift volunteers, please be sure to check the answering machine for any messages. When you've written the message(s) down, please remember to delete all messages by pressing and holding the DEL key down for at least 3 seconds and beeps will sound to acknowledge the deletion.

As with most inkjet style printers, please be sure to turn off the new HP InkJet printer after using it with the off/on button on the face of the printer. This is to provide a proper shutdown for the printer that helps prevent the ink from drying out.

The new Brother Laser printer is always "on" as long as the power bar for the Tech computer is on. It is the default printer for the network. When a print command is sent to it by any computer it will "wake up" from sleep mode. In order to print from any system when the network is on and linked, single left-click (slc) on File/Print in the program you are working in. The Print dialog box will appear and you can SLC on OK to send the document to the printer. There is no need to turn this printer on or off using the power switch on its side, unless of course you have a paper jam.

Unless there is a special need for color, always using the laser printer which is set up as the default printer for the network
