Remote Desktop Now on KSL iBooks
Windows remote desktop access has been a regular student request here. The Freedman Center multimedia PCs have always had remote desktop access, but now our iBooks too.
Being a regular user of remote desktop myself and having lived in the dorms only a few years ago, I understand the need to have Windows remote desktop access on machines. There are many uses, whether it is saving that PDF article you just downloaded, logging in to grab a few images for PowerPoint, getting access to software we do not have installed (like Mathematica or SPSS), or catching up with your classmates via IM to work on a group project. And so, Windows remote desktop is now on our iBooks too.
Our iBooks have a 3 hour loan time and are for use anywhere inside Kelvin Smith Library. They can print to the public access printers on the first or second floor and check out on your library card just like a book. You can learn more about our equipment here.
