Training is required before you can log on to the desktop of the dedicated Claridge Touchscreen PC. Training announcements phrased as ‘Library IT’s phase 1 – basic conference room training’ are made on LibNews regularly; you can also check the library staff calendar to sign up for training.
Plan ahead: Library IT wants you to have successful meetings. If you are hosting a conference, meeting, or event that may require extra assistance, such as using a new device, or hosting a webinar or video conference, please send an OTRS ticket to Library IT at least one week in advance to schedule a practice run so that we can accommodate you appropriately.
Please keep the following important points in mind while using the Claridge Touchscreen:
1. Press the "Power" button once on the lower-right corner of the Claridge Touchscreen display. It may take up to 30 seconds to start.
2. Turn on the wireless keyboard and mouse.
3. Press the “Source” button, and then use the arrow keys to select HDMI 1. Once HDMI 1 is highlighted, select “Source” again to confirm the selected setting.
4. The desktop will prompt you to enter Ctrl+ALT+Delete before logging on. Press Ctrl+ALT+Delete, and then you can sign in with your netid and AD (active directory) password.
