Welcome! Ritter Library Updates - NYTimes, Helpdesk, Hours, and more!

NYTimes Readership Program - Announcing campus-wide electronic access

You now have full complimentary access to NYTimes.com and NYTimes mobile apps, as well as their international editions, thanks to our school-wide subscription.*

We encourage faculty to use this access to enrich your curriculum and help foster students' critical thinking, civic engagement and global awareness. The Times is widely regarded as the gold standard in journalism and provides a wide range of content to support classroom strategies.

Activate your Pass for free access to NYTimes.com by clicking here (https://myaccount.nytimes.com/verification/edupass ) and following the simple instructions.   Students can follow these same instructions and are also notified via their https://my.bw.edu  portal announcements.

Helpdesk Moved to Ritter Library

The IT HelpDesk http://help.bw.edu/ has relocated to Ritter Library room 106, main floor right behind the Reference Desk!  Same phone number (x7000), same website http://help.bw.edu/, same helpful folks… just in a new location.  If you need tech support, look for their extended hours this fall at Ritter!
