Computer Lab 85
Policies & Procedures
Dona Ana Community College strives to provide its students with state of the art computing equipment. To maintain our facilities, we ask that you observe the following procedures:
- For your protection and that of the equipment, all diskettes must be scanned for viruses upon entering the lab (at the front desk) as needed. Normally diskettes will be scanned upon access at each individual computer.
- Several computers are attached to special equipment or have special software. We may ask you to release them to students needing to use them.
- ID’s (or other property) are required to check out any books/manuals, diskettes, or other equipment from the lab (front desk).
- The lab phone is for business use only and limited to 2-minute calls. Emergency calls are allowed.
- Any special requests need the approval of the lab coordinator. Lab assistants do not have the authority to grant any special requests.
- We ask that you print only one copy of your document. If you need more than one copy, please go to a copy machine.
- The lab assistants are available to help troubleshoot equipment or software. They can help only at their level of expertise. Your instructor is to provide any definite answers to questions you may have about your homework.
