Sign up for One-on-One Computer Training Sessions

   Tuesday, February 19th, 2013 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Computers with tutorsThe program from last year that funded one-on-one computer instruction at the library has been extended, and we're happy to offer this service again! Sessions start on February 19th and will run for about nine months.

Sessions are being scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday mornings (10am and 11am) and evenings (6pm and 7pm) - contact the Reference Desk at 978-256-5521 x211 to schedule an appointment. Any technology topic is fair game - using a computer, downloading ebooks, getting an email account, learning software like Excel, installing software, or even just a quick refresher.

These instructional sessions are made possible through the BTOP program at UMass-Lowell, focused on improving digital literacy.

For more information, contact the Reference Desk at askus@mvlc.org or 978-256-5521 x211.

Wi-Fi at the Library

   Friday, May 23rd, 2008 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Wi-Fi logoDid you know that the library offers wireless access to the internet?

Anyone with a wi-fi-ready laptop computer or other device can get on the internet at the Library using your device and our fast internet connection. Right now, the best signal strength is available on the lower level, and the reference staff is available to help you connect to our wireless network.

More information about our connection and requirements is available on our Laptop Internet Access webpage. We also have a wireless frequently asked question list, including other places around town that offer free wi-fi.

The Library's wi-fi is unsecured, which means you don't need a password or account to log on. It also means that anyone you are sharing the network with could potentially monitor what you're doing online. This is true of many public wireless networks, so it is always a good idea to know about wireless security before you use a public wireless network.

Here are a few online resources to learn more about using wireless networks safely:

If you have questions about the Library's wireless connection, or about using wi-fi connections in general, please contact the Reference Desk.
