Guides & Reference

ITS staff members and consultants prepare guides that are intended to provide concise, basic information about using Mines computing resources. All of the information below is available on the ITS web site and some items are available as handouts at the Mines Service Center, CT 156A. This is step-by-step “how to” information that will enable you to quickly learn how to create accounts, use electronic mail, create web pages, print from the computer labs, etc.
