Printing from ICollege

There has been much confusion over the new system of printing from iCollege. There's a handout at the desk that explains how to do it, but basically, here's the scoop.

For .pdf use internal icons to give the print command.

For a Microsoft file, enable editing , then use file>print in the usual way.

The Desire to Learn 24/7 support line is 1-855-772-0423.

New Year, New Semester, New Faces

2014 got off to a chilly start!  The threat of black ice gave the full-timers a delayed opening on the 6th,  and a water main break gave us most of the day off on the 7th. Everything at the corner of Tilly Mill and Womack was a literal sheet of ice, but the main problem for us was that there wasn't enough water to flush the toilets!

You'll notice that the African art was removed over break and replaced by the work of local artists: mostly GPC students.  The new exhibit features student work in a variety of mediums interpreting the theme "Home," a response to the GPC Reads book this year, Beyond KatrinaWe've got some great talent here at GPC!

Finally, you'll be seeing some new faces on staff.  Two part-time librarians have joined our ranks:  Mary Etta Thomas and Vikki Walters.  I'll soon ask them to write a short self-introduction for you, but very briefly... 
  • Mary Etta has been a school media specialist for decades.  She recently retired from the Dekalb County School System. 
  • Vikki is a  recent MLIS graduate of the University of North Texas, and a long-time paraprofessional in the Atlanta Fulton Public Library System.
Please welcome these new colleagues.  And WELCOME BACK to ALL of you!
