Suggestions and Comments
Comment: What would it take to make the building (and the campus) Wi-Fi enabled so that students and faculty could access the internet from any of their pocket pc/palm type devices? Emailing notes, browsing the internet, etc while sitting on the 2nd floor makes for a great environment!

SUBJECT: Wireless internet!
The new addition to the library will certainly include wireless access. Whether the existing building could be wired before the upcoming addition/renovation project or after is still uncertain. We wouldn't want to spend funds on a project like that only to have everything torn out and replaced in the renovation project unless we could reuse most or all of the hardware.
Security is also a major concern. Presently wireless access on campus is limited to computers that have their network cards registered with ITS. This allows the university to maintain control over the use or misuse of the campus network as required by the Board of Regents.
