Computer problems in Room 130 Monday night 10/27 and an interesting observation

During a workshop for graduate tax students tonight, students were unable to logon to
computers 1148A and 1216B. The student using 1158 said it was running very slow.

The graduate students were in a first semester tax class. Although this situation did not occur for workshops given Sunday to class members, of 20 attendees Monday night, only four knew their Baruch user name and password prior to the workshop. Some knew it had been sent to them, but they didn't have it and didn't know where to get the information. They had used Blackboard. I believe that many students attending the workshop tonight are working during the day but the lack of knowing their use name and password indicated their lack of use of library resources.
