Highlighting Top Resources for Students

  • Get Microsoft Office for FREE by logging in at webmail.brynmawr.edu. Click Office 365 in the top left corner and click to install Office 2016 on more than five devices!
  • Need to learn a new tech skill? Check out Lynda.com! See the LITS Blog for more info. Check Tech Docs for help with printing, basic troubleshooting, and more.
  • Coming soon: self-guided library tours using augmented reality! Students use an iOS device (we can lend you one) to complete a game-based, self-guided introduction to the library’s services. We can also offer a scheduled group activity during class time: interested faculty can contact library@brynmawr.edu to schedule.

Launching Multi-Factor Authentication

Beginning Monday, September 17 all faculty, many staff, and some student employees will begin using multi-factor authentication (MFA) when logging in to many of the College’s online services. A big Thank You to approximately 200 early adopters who began using Duo in August! See the LITS Blog for details.

Opening ear-whispered: works by Tania El Khoury

Camp Pause exhibitionThe College is hosting a major survey of artworks that engage the ongoing refugee crisis in the Middle East. Experience Camp Pause, a 4-channel video installation made by El Khoury as part of the Beirut-based artists’ collective Dictaphone Group, from September 12 – December 14 in the Canaday Rare Book Room. Join us for a wide variety of related events exploring themes of migration, story-telling, and social justice in the Middle East. From Sept 6-23, additional artworks and programs are taking place around campus and in Philadelphia as part of FringeArts.

Working with our Summer Interns

Installing our New Phone System

The College’s new phone system went live in June, and we’ve been tweaking programming to streamline office operations. Just returned to campus, curious about new features, or need a refresher? Tech Docs can get you started. We’ll be hosting a few Q&A sessions the week of September 24 – watch the Daily Digest for details.

Shining a Spotlight on Security

Preparing to launch a new library catalog and discovery layer

A new interface for Tripod, the library catalog, is coming December 20. The new system will offer improved user experience and allow the libraries to more efficiently manage the various print and electronic materials that we acquire and to which we subscribe. Find more information in the Project Overview.
