Why use the Help Desk

  • The Help Desk is a much more efficient way of logging calls compared to using a Phone or email.

  • if a problem is logged on the Help Desk, it becomes easy to prioritized them

  • It is easy to refer back to the problem if it has been logged in the Help Desk correctly.

What Happens to call Logged to the Help Desk

  • All the calls logged to the Help Desk are assigned to technicians who in turn will attend to them.

  • An email will be sent to a user who has sent a Help Desk request to inform them that a call has been logged on their behalf.

  • After the technician has attended to the problem, the call will be “Closed”

How to do a Screen Dump

  • The reason for a Screen Dump is that it gives an exact graphical description of the problem

  • On the keyboard there is a button that is labeled Print Screen/SysRq, hold down the Ctrl button and click the Print Screen. This will copy what ever you are viewing on to clipboard

  • On Paint click on the Edit menu and click on Paste.


Remote desktop assistance

Remote Desktop Assistance

  • It is a tool where the I.T department can connect to a P.C. remotely – Only with a users consent

  • This means that sometimes a Technician does not need to go to the users P.C. to solve some problems. For example, A document that cannot open.

  • This helps in time saving and provides quicker response to a problem.


Why do password expire

Why do password expire

  • The major reason for a password to expire is security

    • If one keeps the same password for too long the possibilities of it being know and cracked are high

    • Sometimes the I.T department might ask you to give them your password for them to be able to solve a problem Remotely or for some other reasons (Only with your consent)


In closing

In closing

  • I.T department provides a substantial amount of service to the Library.

  • It helps in the investigation of new Technologies that can be of use to the Library.

  • The I.T. Help Desk provides a link and it is a first place of contact for Library users
