Pick up Library/IT Orientation Packet

Full Library Orientation Schedule

Pick up Library/IT Orientation Packet (Prior to attending any event)

The first step in the Library/IT Orientation process is to pick up a packet from Library staff at the Library’s Circulation Desk. As you pick up your packet, your name will be checked off a list. Keep this packet with you throughout the Library/IT Orientation. The packet will include items which will provide additional details about both the Library and the Orientation procedure, such as a Location Guide and checklists for Orientation activities.

Library Tour  You must sign up in advance for this session.
The Tour will take you to three floors of the Library. By completing a Tour, you will learn about your access to the Library, its physical layout, amenities available at the Circulation Desk, and materials contained on each floor. The Tour will emphasize practical features of the Library, such as the location of printers, public computers, and the Computer Lab. Librarians will briefly point out the types of legal materials contained on the 1st Floor, exposing you to resources which you will use during law school.

Laptop Connection session  You must sign up in advance for this session.
The Laptop Connection session will help you connect your laptop to TTU resources by covering the RaiderDrive Setup, Network Printers, and Wireless Setup portions of the Laptop Connection Guide. It is recommended that you review (complete if possible) the Guide’s instructions ahead of time on your own while on campus in order to reduce your time spent in the session. The Microsoft Office Setup and Antivirus Setup portions will not be covered in the session and must be completed on your own. There will be a brief overview of each resource covered along with time for IT-related questions at the end of the session.

Computing Resources session  You must sign up in advance for this session.
The Computing Resources session will address web-based applications or databases available at TTU which are described in the Computing Resource Guide. It is recommended that you review (complete if possible) the Guide’s instructions ahead of time on your own while on campus to reduce your time spent in the session. Resources covered in the session include MyTechLaw, Course Sites, TechLaw Announce, MediaSite, Classroom Technology, Raiderlink, Examsoft, and Lexis and Westlaw passwords.

General Information/Carrel Keys session
The final step in the Library/IT Orientation process is to attend a General Information/Carrel Keys session. You must complete all other Orientation steps before you will be able to attend this session. In the General Information/Carrel Keys session, you will learn how to access Library printers to facilitate your work while in law school. You will also receive and sign for the key set (door key and cabinet key) to your carrel, as well as learn carrel policies. There is no sign-up process to attend the General Information/Carrel Keys session. Simply complete all other steps in the Orientation process; then you may attend this session.
