Thank you, Volunteers!

I would like to extend a big thank you and welcome to our summer tech and reference volunteers. Through your hard work and dedication, you make the programs and services we offer to patients and families of the CVC possible. Thank you Zoe, Allison, Vicki, Jimmy, Brad, and now Benadette. I look forward to getting to know all of you better as the summer goes on, and working together to make the MWRC the best it can be.

REPOST FROM RUTI VOLK FROM February 26, 2009 – Re: Connecting the iPods (and iPads) to the WiFi

Added Note: this message is for both Reference volunteers and Tech Squad volunteers)

Hello Volunteers,
It is always a good idea to connect iPods (and iPads) to the WiFi before each checkout. The connection is created in two steps:

Step One: selecting the guest network in the iPod's Settings

Step Two: logging in to the guest network.

In most cases all our iPods already have the guest network selected in their Settings, but sometimes this selection is lost and needs to be re-set. To do that locate and touch the Settings icon on the one of the main screens. (It will say Settings underneath a picture of machine parts.)

Next, touch the WiFi application. When you see the screen which says Wi-Fi ON, turn it off by touching the ON button. Wait for several seconds, and then turn it back ON by touching the OFF button.

Once Wi-Fi is once again ON, make sure that a checkmark appears next to guest under the Choose a Network option.

After the Guest network is selected in the Settings it will be possible to logon through the Web.

Every time the iPod is turned off, it logs out of the guest network, this is why you need to log back on after it is turned back on again.

To do that, tap on the Safari icon. Type in a URL. You will get a message asking you accept the website certificate. Tap "Yes".

Next you will seethe long yellow page which is the welcome page to the guest network. Scroll down until you find the text boxes at the bottom. Type in a last name and an email address and tap "Continue". You will get another page on which you will have to tap "continue" again and you are done!

Please don't hesitate to ask at the Reference Desk or one of our Tech Squad Volunteers to help you with this or any other application.
