Heads up in case patrons ask what's going on around McIver on Feb 1
On Feb. 1, UNCG will conduct one
of the largest-ever law enforcement/mass casualty full-scale emergency
exercises on a UNC system campus. With funding
from General Administration, the exercise will involve 300+ members of
university staff and other personnel, along with federal, local, and
state government, among others. The purpose of the exercise, which will
take place in and around the UNCG
McIver Building, is to test the university and community emergency
response and recovery plans and capabilities. Please be aware that
temporary road closures, parking, noise and enhanced activity will occur
primarily between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. For more information –
or to register as a volunteer to serve as a role player in the exercise
– visit the McIver Exercise Volunteer Registration Survey page.

This morning, we've already helped a handful of new students at the desk who don't have any of their accounts set up. While you can always refer them to 6tech, you can try helping them activate their accounts first. If a student has an ID number but no username yet, they can go to http://accounts.uncg.edu, select "New Account Requests" and then click the link for "Computer Accounts Activation."
At the end of 2017, NCLIVE ended access to a few resources, namely:

Keep in mind if patrons are looking for a language learning program (then often ask for Rosetta Stone) that we now have access to Mango Languages. If patrons are looking for GRE, PRAXIS, and other test prep, we can direct them to Testing & Education Reference Center.
