Usage

General

  • To log onto a computer, your user name is your UVID and your password is your myUVU Password.
  • Computers are monitored for inappropriate use.
  • Open Lab print credit starting balance is $10.00 per semester. Print credit is reset at the beginning of each semester and is not refundable.
    • Extra print credit can be added through print.uvu.edu. Print credit can be added with a credit card or cash (at the Library Circulation desk). You must be on a campus network (W-Fi or Ethernet) to access the print credit system.
    • Price per printed page: 5¢ for black & white; 20¢ for color.
    • The labs are not set up for students to use their own paper in the laser printers.
    • NOTE: Only add as much credit as you intend to use for the current semester because any unused balance will be lost at the beginning of the next semester.
    • See the Printing Services page for more information about printing on campus

Passwords

Make sure you remember your password. Your password must be at least 8 characters long, contain an upper case letter and a lower case letter, 1 number, and 1 special character. It should not be your username, your middle name, the name of your significant other, one of your children, or even your dog's name. The security of your data depends on you!

Scanning

  • Scanners are available for use in the Info Commons Lab.
  • The quality of the scan is dependent upon the quality of the original you submit.
    • Line art, charts, and graphs that have been photocopied work fairly well.
    • Color or black and white photographs and images taken directly from books or magazines don't generally reproduce well in a document.
  • High quality copies of text can be scanned and converted to an editable word processing format.
    • Single or multiple unbound pages can be accommodated.
    • Text scanned directly from books and magazines doesn't generally reproduce well in the converted form.
  • Please be aware of any copyright issues that may be associated with the material that you are planning to have scanned. Make sure that you can legally use the material before you bring it to us. The lab, the Center for Student Computing, or its employees cannot be held responsible for plagiarism or any kind of copyright violations by students.
  • If you desire assistance with scanning, please give the copy to be scanned to one of the lab assistants and they will be happy to assist you.

Support

The Lab Assistants in the open labs can help you with general questions regarding Windows, Windows Applications, and basic operation of the computer. However, they may or may not be familiar with all of the software available in the labs or all the features of Windows software.

Help files are available for the software in the lab. You may refer to them if you have a question that we cannot answer for you. In almost any Windows program, just try pressing the F1 key to display the help file.

The Lab Assistants are here to assist you when they can, but they are not here to replace your instructors or to complete your assignments for you. Feel free to ask reasonable questions, and they will be very happy to help if they can.
