Where can I get my IU related technology questions answered?
UITS (University Information Technology Services) provides a Knowledge Base of frequently asked questions. You can request personal assistance as well through various methods (UITS Help options).
Indiana University provides a wide range of powerful software free for students (such as Office) with other software at a reduced fee. Visit their Software and Hardware page for more information on free and recommended technology.
What are Technology Fees?
Technology Fees are collected by the University to pay for several technology benefits for SLIS students. These include email accounts, IT support, computer labs, and more. For more information on Technology Fees and other Mandatory Fees, visit the IUPUI Office of the Bursar website.
Is there much technology at SLIS?
With their JagTag student cards, SLIS students have exclusive use of the Dewey Den on the 3rd floor of the University Library, adjacent to the SLIS offices. This contains a smartboard, computer terminals, and comfortable individual and group seating.
The University Library at IUPUI is one of the nation's leading examples of a modern computer-based library network and student work center. In-person SLIS courses take advantage of UL computer labs and other facilities.
Why am I required to join the SLIS-Indy Listserv?
It is very important that you join the listserv if you are admitted to SLIS at Indianapolis. Through this listserv you will receive notification of schedules well in advance of registration deadlines as well as changes in the schedules from those printed in the university catalogues. Notice of presentations, special events on campus, as well as any traffic problems will be posted on this listserv. Issues concerning changes that you as a student feel should be made to improve SLIS at Indianapolis will also be discussed.
Should I join the SLIS-L Listserv?
You may join the SLIS-L Listserv at any time, however it is not necessary for students who are only taking classes on the Indianapolis or other satellite campuses. SLIS-L is designed for students taking classes on the Bloomington Campus. Important information from Bloomington or from the central university administration at any campus will be forwarded for distribution to SLIS-Indy.
Why should I set up an IUPUI email account?
According to university policy, the e-mail address established with the university is the official path for communication concerning academic issues. If you have not done so already, please add your IUPUI e-mail address to the SLIS-Indy listserv. This can be done in addition to the personal e-mail account you may have used to subscribe. SLIS IUPUI faculty and administration should also try to respond to student communications using the IUPUI e-mail address. If the reply is to a student's personal account, the IUPUI e-mail address should be copied if possible.
