More of the software students need is now available on library workstations. Microsoft Office has been added to all library computers with NetID access.
Everything students need to complete an assignment, from initial research to finished product, is readily available in the library. Reference tools, digital resources, network access — and now students’ favorite software applications — are all available on one desktop.
After students complete their research, they can type a term paper in Word, organize and analyze data in Excel, and design a classroom presentation in Powerpoint without leaving the library.
An additional 165 workstations in the Hodges, Map, and Music libraries are now configured with Microsoft Office 2003 Pro. Workstations at the Agriculture & Veterinary Medicine Library (where there is less access to computer labs than on the main campus) have included Microsoft Office for some time, and it has been very popular with students.
Helping students integrate these applications into a seamless workflow is just one more way the UT Libraries support the needs of the 21st century student.
