Public library patrons
|LoneStar-Visitor||All other visitors (contractors, vendors, conference attendees, presenters, etc.)|
How do I connect my personal mobile device to the wireless network (Wi-Fi)?
LSC students, faculty, and staff: Connect to LoneStar and log in using your LSC email and password.
Public library patrons and University Center students, faculty, and staff: Connect to LoneStar using your 14-digit library card number as your username and PIN as your password.
All other visitors (contractors, vendors, or visitors who are attending conferences or giving presentations): You must be registered as a visitor in order to access the LoneStar-Visitor network. If you were not given a temporary username and password to use during your stay when you arrived, ask your Lone Star College-employed sponsor for assistance or call the OTS Service Desk at 832.813.6600 to be registered as a visitor and receive your login credentials.
For troubleshooting or further assistance with network connectivity, please contact the Office of Technology Services.
May I borrow a laptop computer for use in the library?
Laptops which are fully configured for the wireless network may be available for checkout from the circulation desk, depending on campus. Please refer to the Borrow a Laptop Computer guidelines.
Is the wireless network secure?
The LSC wireless network is as secure as any open public access network. It is always a good idea to make sure you are on an SSL-encrypted web page prior to sending or receiving confidential data.
Can I print from a laptop?
You have two options:
- Upload your document to myprintcenter.LoneStar.edu. You can then proceed to the print station and release the document like normal.
- Note, there are some print options that won't be available using this method, e.g. printing PowerPoint slides as handouts or notes. You will be able to choose color versus black and white, number of copies, and basic things like that.
- You can save your work to a USB flash drive or attach a file to an email message you can access and use a library desktop computer to print to the library network printers.
