Wireless Access

As of January 2006 the library has sixty seven wireless access points up and running. These access points provide complete coverage throughout both library buildings. For more information in regards to using this service please go the campus wireless website at http://www.uwindsor.ca/wireless or see the student IT Consultants in the library.

A wireless connection will give you access to e-mail and the Internet as well as most of the library databases. You will need to use your own applications, such as a Web browser and FTP and Telnet programs. Currently, there is no access to the Student Novell Network's software or library network printers.

The library has a limited number of Wireless laptop cards that you can use to access the wireless network if your laptop does not have a wireless card. These are available from the Reserve Counter.

We also have a limited number of USB flash drives at the Reserve counter that you may use to transfer files from your laptop to one of our workstations in order to print your work.
