Along with the policies outlined in the IRC Computer Lab Policies, we require that you adhere to these policies while using the digital lab:


No food or drinks in the lab.

Files saved on the computers will be erased each semester. Your files will not be lost when the computer is shut down. 

Create your own folder that is easily identifiable 

Please be courteous of others' files. Remember to back up your files and save often 

Please keep the desktop clean. Use the two folders (student files and temp storage) on the desktop to save your files.

A note does not grant you the rights to a computer. You are still at the mercy of your neighbor if you leave a note. That said, please be as courteous as possible when others do leave notes. 

Clean up after yourself and be respectful of the space; other people have to use it after you. If you move something, put it back: chairs, lamps, desks, references, etc. should be returned to their original locations.
