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.
