Computer Labs

The College of Forestry and Conservation has labs available for both Graduate and Undergraduate Students. The labs are a shared hardware/software resource. As such, the actions of each user affect others sharing these resources. The policies for this lab were designed to maximize the amount of time the lab is available for use, and to minimize misuse of these resources. Most importantly it ensures that the lab is available for use when you or others most need it.

Data Storage (Z: drive)

Graduate Students Only!

If graduate students need server space to store their critical data, they can request a Z: drive. This is a drive on one of our servers and is backed up nightly. We do ask that only school related critical data be saved on the Z: drive. When students finish graduate work, it is their responsibility clean off their Z: drive and notify the system administrators. -- support@cfc.umt.edu

Lab Policies

Software

Do not install ANY software on the computers. If you need a specific software package installed, please contact support@cfc.umt.edu and request that the software be installed.

Be Considerate

If others are waiting to use the computers for course work please be considerate and email your friends at another time. There are several other labs on campus where you may do protracted emailing. We realize that email can be part of your work, but you wouldn't spend an hour on the phone in this lab, so why is it any more appropriate to spend an hour emailing friends?

This lab was created for class work, and for research. The presence of friends, pets, visitors or bikes interferes with other students' rights to get their work done.

Food and Beverages

No food. Beverages with screw-top lids only. If it spills, clean it up. You wouldn't want a sticky keyboard, so why force the next user to endure one?

Inappropiate Use

Class relevant web surfing only. No sex web sites. No chat, chatrooms, IRC, MUD, MUSH, or similar. This line speaks for itself. While constitutionally legal, these activities are not sanctioned uses of this lab.

No games. If it is not schoolwork, then it is not to be done here.

No software piracy.
