CHANGES TO OFF-CAMPUS LAPTOP/PROJECTOR USE AND AV EQUIPMENT RETURN. Sarah Paro (6317 or sparo) is now handling reservations for laptops and projectors for off-campus presentations. Please pick up reserved equipment at the AV desk in KPl 175 instead of Karlyne's office in MWAH.

All equipment checked out from AV (KPl 175) must be returned there. If you are teaching a late night class or doing a weekend presentation and cannot get back to KPl 175 prior to closing time, please secure the equipment in a locked office and return it as soon as possible the next working day. There will no longer be lab attendants in KPl 165 lab, so it is imperative that no equipment be left in that area.

FORWARDING YOUR EMAIL to a different email address is an option that is available. ITSS recommends you use our facilities for your email and suggests you forward your email to your UMD address. However, we recognize that in certain situations you may need to forward your email to a different site. You can do this by following the link below to find the ITSS "email" web site. Once there, look on the left side in the blue background area and click on the "forward your email" item. You will be prompted for email address information. You can also use this page to stop forwarding or adjust the address as needed.

POLICY ON APPROPRIATE USE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY. At the beginning of our new school year, please take a few minutes to review the campus policy on appropriate use of information technology. Although campus and university policies do allow for some personal use of computer and network systems, there are reasonable limits on this use as detailed in the policy. In particular, sending email to large aliases offering personal items for sale or soliciting on behalf of one's favorite charity or organization violates the policy. Solicitation on behalf of official University-sponsored charities or marketing of official campus businesses is acceptable. Thank you for your careful use of taxpayer-supported resources.

You can find more information on the web at the following site:
See --> Appropriate Use Policy
