Updates planned in InfoCommons, university computing labs

During winter break, the Information Technology Assistance Center will be replacing all of the PCs located on the first, second, and third floors of the K-State InfoCommons in Hale Library. The new Dell machines will feature a 20-inch wide-screen monitor as well as memory and processor upgrades.

A test machine will be placed near the IT Help Desk in the near future, so users can come by and check out the image before it’s deployed throughout the rest of the environment.

The university computing labs across campus will also be getting software updates as well, so each lab will be closed for a period of 2-3 days at some point over the break. During this time, all of the labs except Nichols 21 will also have a new Hewlett-Packard 9050 printer installed. This type of printer is currently being used in the K-State InfoCommons.

K-State departments: If you currently have any software installed in either the InfoCommons or university computing labs and are aware of any updates available that you want to have installed, submit these requests in writing to softwarerequest@k-state.edu as soon as possible. For information about policies, see the labs’ Software addition policy.
