The MLC will be closed, along with the rest of UGA’s Athens campus, at 3:30pm January 6. Please check the MLC website for hours/closings throughout the weekend at http://mlc.uga.edu/
The fair will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. October 21 & 22 in the second floor rotunda of the MLC and is open to all staff, faculty and students for their personal computers. Technical volunteers will provide security checks and free virus and malware removal for PC and Mac laptops. They will also install the latest software and security updates, ensure that firewalls are enabled and update antivirus and operating systems. Volunteers will also examine other software problems, such as slow performance and unknown error messages.
This fall, the fair will have a separate line for faculty and staff seeking help for their personal computers, to move them through the check-up process faster.

Are you interested in helping us shape the future of the Libraries and MLC? We are looking for 3-5 members to join the Student Advisory Group for the coming year.
The group will meet twice annually to capture feedback from students about Libraries/MLC services, resources, facilities, and programming in order to foster communication that will improve and develop the Libraries/MLC and our role in supporting student learning. Students will serve one year terms with the option to renew.
If you would like to participate, please let us know a little about yourself and your interest in the committee by filling out the form at http://goo.gl/forms/IrFuidI3Ej.
We will choose 3-5 at-large members by Friday, February 6th. Questions? Please contact Caroline Barratt (firstname.lastname@example.org).
