Internet and Database Access Available at LSC-CyFair This Weekend

laptops and serverHello Everyone, 

As you may have seen or heard, HCPL is moving their system servers to a new location this weekend.  As a result all internet and database access that is provided by these servers will be temporarily unavailable, both online and in most of the branches.

Luckily, here at LSC-CyFair, we have almost 200 college computers that will have internet access, and database access (to some extent). All you need to use the computers is an HCPL library card or an LSCS student ID/library card (or ask about getting a guest pass).

Thank you
