Lab Rules

Food and drink are not permitted in the Lab at any time.  Beverages and snacks should be consumed outside of the lab.

Keep the lab easily navigable. Store large backpacks, food/beverage, large coats, etc. at the storage area near the door.

Sound expectations –  Be considerate to other patrons in the lab. Much work here involves a great deal of concentration and noise levels should be kept at t minimum. Cell phones are permitted but we ask that extended calls be taken outside the lab.

Save your work –  Always back up your work to your own computer, to a flash drive, or to One Drive, before closing out your session. There is no guarantee your work will be saved on the hard drive at your next log in. Between Macs you can use AirDrop or make use of your OneDrive account accessible through your outlook email.

Scanning –  Ask for help, follow the steps on the signs, and learn the entire process. The scanners may be used for class assignments and Independent Study projects. If you need to scan something that is “messy, ask for assistance, as there are specific scanners just for that purpose.

Printing is RESERVED FOR ART STUDENTS ONLY and for CLASS and I.S. RELATED WORK – Printing in this lab is checked against your studio fees. Most printing is included in your specific course as part of a lab fee. Printing beyond those allowances is not included and subject to separate billing. Charges for printing include anything that you accidentally print. The lab does not provide printing for personal or campus organization purposes.

Do not change ink cartridges without staff or faculty present – Ink cartridge use in the lab is carefully monitored and on a strict budget. If you are unable to print due to low ink, come back during supervised lab hours to print your project.

Always log out when you are finished with your session –  Respect the equipment and other users. Not logging out often creates problems for the next user.

Keep the lab clean – Follow posted instructions. Monitors and scanner glass – spray glass cleaner on cleaning cloths, then wipe the glass. Keyboards and mice – use alcohol wipes when the computer is logged out or off.  No other studio art mediums such as paint, clay, glue, or other messy materials can be used in the Ebert Digital Lab.
