Welcome Back Students!
Hey! We missed you! It's good to see the library and the campus full again!
You've probably noticed a few changes. For example, most of the library computers are now reserved for Reinhardt students only. You will need to enter your username and password to log in. For most of you, your username will be your last name and your 5-digit student ID number. Your password will be your 4-digit PIN number.
New students, your username is your last name and 5-digit student ID number, and your password will be your eight-digit date of birth: for example, March 28, 1991 would be 03281991.
These instructions are also posted next to the machines. If you have any problems, IT recommends you try both methods. If you still have difficulty logging in, give IT a call at (770) 720-5555.
Why did we make this change? We wanted to open more computers up for you. After all, you're the reason we're all here! Also, once you log in, you can save your documents to your individual Reinhardt H drive. We recommend you save frequently, as occasional power outages can happen. We've heard the anguished cries of stressed-out students who've lost the term papers they just spent hours writing. We don't want that to happen to you!
If you're a returning Reinhardt student, we would like to take this opportunity to say, "Welcome Back!" If you're a new student (or just new to the library) we want to tell you welcome and let you know that your library staff is here for you. We want to help you make the best of your college years. We're always available to help answer your reference questions and help you take advantage of the many resources we have to offer! We're proud of our collection, proud of our staff, and proud of all of you. This is going to be a great year.
Best wishes and good luck to all of you,
Your Library Staff
PS... Feel free to browse through our blog archive. We've added several new databases this summer, and your library blogger has reviewed many of them for you during those hot, lazy months... See what's new for you!
