Resources: Helpful Links and Information

Over the years, Academic Technologies has created many handouts and informational blurbs about various programs. From this page, you can access online explanations of how to use these (both written and audio/visual) as well as download pdf versions of our recent handouts, including those for Zimbra, Moodle, and CPS. Multifunction Printers are described elsewhere on the ITS website, here.

If you can't find what you are looking for here, try looking in our Index, or in the general ITS Help Library.
