Hostname and Inventory No.

Each networked Library computer has a unique name and address so it can be easily identified. Please provide either your computer hostname (also called “machine name”) or its inventory number (also called “inventory tag”) when you contact Library IT to report a problem or to request assistance with a workstation.

Where you can find this information:

Look for a label(s) similar to the examples below on your desktop or computer/monitor

Typically on the right side of a computer, back of a monitor, or bottom of a laptop, there are several labels on your computer.

One of them will be the hostname or machine name label and it looks like this:

Hostname: LIBSTFUAR10. For Assist. Call 4-4688

One of them will be the inventory number label. It may look like one of the following tags:
