The library's computers do not have MS Word installed. These computers are specifically purposed for accessing the Internet. If you need to do some word processing and do not want to go to Ka Lama Computer Lab or The Learning Center, try Google Docs. You will need to set up a Google account.
Once you have a Google Docs account you can:
Create basic documents from scratch or start from a template.
You can easily do all the basics, including making bulleted lists, sorting by columns, adding tables, images, comments, formulas, changing fonts and more. And it's free.
Upload your existing files.
Google Docs accepts most popular file formats, including DOC, XLS, ODT, ODS, RTF, CSV, PPT, etc. So go ahead and upload your existing files.
Familiar desktop feel makes editing a breeze.
Just click the toolbar buttons to bold, underline, indent, change font or number format, change cell background color and so on.
WebVoyáge, the Voyager online catalog web interface, has been completely redesigned. The new interface offers library patrons improved functionalities based on usability studies and the input of numerous focus groups conducted over the last couple of years. The new WebVoyáge “look and feel” with a modern easy-to-use layout.
In addition to the improved look and feel, the new interface incorporates design elements that make WebVoyáge more accessible, as outlined in the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative and U.S. Federal Section 508 standards. Ex Libris worked in close collaboration with the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) as part of the IBHE Web Accessibility Consortium, using the iCITA HTML Best Practices guidelines for accessible design.
