ASCC Welcome Week at CTC
Wednesday, September 26
Come check out your new ASCC Officers during Welcome Week first thing in the morning on Wednesday, September 26. They will be handing out the new 2012 student planners, snacks, prizes and lots of information for students.
The iCommons just got a new portable white board for students! It can be checked out for three hours and used anywhere in the building. Check it out for groups projects, presentations, etc. Come see it for yourself!
The CTC iCommons is a great place to take a proctored test. Students can sign up for quiet study rooms and take their exams without interruption. Unfortunately library staff cannot keep your personal belongings while you are taking your test. If the instructor determines that books, bags, etc. are not allowed while taking the exam, you must find storage for your belongings. Need somewhere in the building? There are day lockers on the first floor of the CTC where you can use your own lock to keep them safe. Happy test taking!

February 29, also known as leap day in the Gregorian calendar, is a date occurring in most years evenly divisible by 4 (2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016). Years evenly divisible by 100 don’t contain a leap day, with the exception of years that are evenly divisible by 400, which do contain a leap day. Therefore 1900 didn’t contain a leap day while 2000 did. Years containing a leap day are called leap years. February 29 is the 60th day of the Gregorian calendar in such a year, with 306 days remaining until the end of that year.

Last evening’s episode of On the Media had three interesting segments related to Internet issues that affect users globally. You can stream or download these segments:
In Internet Censorship from Around the Globe (6:48) On the Media cohost Bob Garfield and Electronic Frontier Foundation Activism Director Rainey Reitman discuss recent and ongoing events related to blocking access to certain Internet sites.
Brooke Gladstone cohosted two segments. In The Internet is a Tool, Not a Human Right (5:54) Vinton Cerf, one of the creators of the Internet (also Vice President and “Chief Internet Evangelist” for Google) frames his response in relation to the concepts in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Harvard Law Professor Jonathan Zittrain also draws on the Universal Declaration in the segment, Everyone Should be Able to Access the Internet (6:14). Zittrain (also co-founder of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society) points out that while the media may change, the basic rights remain the same.
On the Media airs locally on opb.org Mondays, 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Well, OK, maybe not as loud as you want. But if you take one of the three courses offered by the library I guarantee you will not be bored! Librarians are always looking for new ways to make these classes relevant but still interesting enough (and dare I say, fun?) that you’ll want to share what you learn with all your Facebook friends. These 1- and 2-credit classes will also give you a head start on research and internet skills that you need for other classes. See Library Courses for more details, but here’s a snapshot:
- LIBR/CTEC 115: Internet Research and Living Online, 2-credits, either online and onsite
- LIBR/CTEC 280: Google Beyond Search, 1 credit, online
- LIBR280: Library Lab for History of World Civilization, 1 credit, onsite (requires co-enroll in HIST 127)

You asked for it, you got it! Students can now choose color printing from the computers in both the iCommons (CTC 219) and the Computer Lab (CTC 203). The printer is physically located in CTC 203.
When you choose color printing, the system automatically deducts 20 points per page from your printing budget. See Student Print Account for more information about print costs, your printing budget, purchasing additional points, and more.
Many thanks to IT Specialist Philip Dennis for setting up the printer.
