Technology in the Law Library
This page contains information about the wireless network at the Law Library, checking out a Wi-Fi card, taking advantage of LAN ports for wired connections, and using the Law Library's computer lab.
The Wireless Network
Regent University has gone wireless! Law Library patrons with appropriate equipment may access this network from most places within the Law Library. Please be aware that the Regent University wireless network uses a shared network technology. As with all shared networks, you should presume that it is insecure, and that others using the wireless network could feasibly capture passwords and account numbers from your computer.
Wireless service is provided by the Information Technology Department at Regent University. If you have questions regarding the wireless network on campus, or for more information on the installation or usage of the Wi-Fi card, please contact the Information Technology Department at (757) 352-4076, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Checking-out a Wi-Fi Card
For students with a laptop, a limited number of wireless netork cards are available at Access Services. A student with a valid Regent ID may borrow a card with installation software and instructions for up to four hours at a time for in-library use only. A CD-ROM drive is required to install the Wi-Fi card software.
The 4-hour loan period may be renewed if no one is waiting for the card at the end of that time. Overdue fines are $5/hr, $20/day, up to $100, or up to $200 for lost, damaged or stolen cards.
The Law Library boasts 188 wired LAN ports for use by students whose laptop has a properly configured LAN card. The University IT Department at Regent University maintains these ports, and can assist students with LAN card configuration for wired network access. For assistance, please contact the Information Technology Department at (757) 352-4076, or at email@example.com.
The University IT Department maintains an eleven-station computer lab in the Law Library. As with other labs on campus, it is open to all University students. In addition to a University printer, this lab contains two networked Lexis printers and two high-volume Westlaw printers for law student use. The latest information and tips for each of these services may be found at tables maintained by the student representatives.
