FREE CHARGING STATION AVAILABLE AT BOOTH LIBRARY
A free electronics charging station is now available for patrons at Booth Library. The station will charge both Android and Apple devices. Up to eight devices can be charged at one time. The station can be found on the north end of the fourth floor, near the elevator.

EBSCO Industries Inc., a content provider for libraries, provided the station thanks to the sponsorship of Cooper-Bumpus Insurance Agency in Charleston.

"We’ve all been in a situation when we needed to charge our phone or device. The charging station will provide another convenience for our patrons while they’re working at the library,” said Allen Lanham, dean of library services. “We are glad to be able to provide this service for our patrons, and we greatly appreciate our local sponsor for making it possible.”

INSTRUCTORS: ACTIVATE YOUR COURSES IN D2L
As an instructor, you control student access to your course. When you want students to begin accessing your fall course, you need to make your course active. Student access is not automatic and is not controlled by the semester start and end dates. The course start date and end date noted on courses in the "My courses" widget is for information purposes only. Student access is basically an on/off switch controlled by the instructor.

To make your course active: Go to your course in D2L, select “Edit Course” (small green icon on the far right of the blue toolbar), and then select “Course Offering Information.” Under “Active,” place a check mark in the box to make the course active. Select “Save” at the bottom of the page.

You also need to make any previous courses inactive that you no longer want students to access by following the same procedure and removing the check mark. If you have questions or need assistance, contact the COL Solution Center at 581-8452.

HONORS MENTORS NEEDED
The Sandra and Jack Pine Honors College is looking for faculty members who would be interested in mentoring freshman and sophomore Presidential Scholars. Mentors are matched with students who share one or more academic or personal interests.
