The Help Desk
The IT Help Desk, located on the first floor of the library, provides front-line, face-to-face support for all forms of computer problems. If they cannot answer your question, they will refer it to the appropriate Senior Consultant. Services at the Help Desk include:
- Network and General Computer Troubleshooting
- Virus Removal
- Password Changes
- Backup Assistance
- General Computing Questions
IT Help Line - x7225
This is your #1 call in a computer emergency. The Help Line serves as an entry point for all computing problems or questions.
The Consult e-mail account provides on-line support for your computing questions. Send mail to consult when you have a non-emergency question. A Consultant will research the answer if necessary, and reply ASAP. Responses are generally sent out within 24 business hours, depending on the nature of the problem. There is also a web form to contact a Consultant.
This is the second tier of support, beyond the IT Help Desk. Call the IT Main Office (x7020) if you'd like to make an appointment for a one-on-one consultation.
