Tech support for personally-owned equipment

Library IT provides "best effort" support for personally-owned laptops and other devices. "Best effort" support is limited to 15 minutes of staff time and is provided ONLY regarding the following questions and issues. 

  • Connecting most USB storage drives to our computer workstations: As USB driver technology varies greatly and the drives are usually not University property, we make a "best effort" to support user-owned USB drives. 
  • Connecting your laptop and devices to in-library flat screens and projection equipment: As the range of laptops, tablets and smartphones is extremely wide-ranging, and devices may have a variety of hardware and software issues, we provide "best effort" support in connecting personally-owned devices to projection screens. 
  • Connecting other types of personally-owned devices to available wireless networks
  • Support for self-service printing
  • Help with password change issues

Per CU Administrative Policy Statement 6001, the library reserves the right to disconnect any personally-owned devices or storage from library workstations or library connections to the campus network that may pose a threat to other campus computing resources.
