The Check-Out Procedure
To check out a
text or video, the student must have his/her ID.
Upon receipt of this resource, you will provide
the student assistant on duty with your ID,
which will remain in the center's custody until
the resource is returned.
Resources cannot be taken
out of the center.
Tutoring at the Center
available at the center for the disciplines it
covers. Just inform the student assistant
on duty that you would like tutoring. He/she
will either begin a tutoring session immediately
or schedule a time with you for a tutoring
session. Please be specific, so the tutor
can be better prepared for the sessions.
Printing documents from
the internet can be tricky as different web
pages are designed differently. Most of
the course web links operate in frames. A
page made in frames means the designer split the
page into different sections. Basically,
the page has multiple pages showing at once,
although it only looks as if one page is being
displayed. When you try to print, internet
explorer will only print one of these frames by
default, the frame that was last active.
Therefore, you must first click on the frame you
want to print before you print. Do not
concern yourself with what frames are, but just
know that some web pages are made in frames, and
when they are, you must click on the area in
which you want to print before you tell the
computer to print.

Some professors offer
extra credit to students for logging in hours at
the Social Sciences Computer Center. If
students would like to earn extra credit at the
center, they must acquire an extra credit slip
from the student assistant prior to using the
center. Extra credit slips will be
destroyed if students are researching areas that
are not specific to their course. In some
cases, students can only use resources that have
been identified by their professor. Extra
credit slips will also be destroyed if students
leave the center while earning hours.
