Software Adoption

The Poynter Library hosts several areas for computing which include the Information Commons, located on the first and third floors of the Nelson Poynter Library, the Library Instruction Classroom in POY218, the Assistive Technologies Room in POY 136, and affiliate users computing kiosk. Currently these areas provide computing services through multiple software packages for use in student coursework and library instruction. Most commonly used tools include the MS Office suite of desktop publishing tools, access to USF learning management systems, and virtual applications most commonly requested by faculty and students of USFSP.

A full listing is available online at http://lib.usfsp.edu/systems. Information Commons computers are managed by NetID, allowing access only to currently registered students, faculty, and staff. In addition to the desktop publishing tools, these computers also provide access to USF System databases, the System’s Learning Management System, and the Internet. Network-based color and black & white printing are also available from all locations.
