EMP Program Orientation

Welcome to the EMP Program Resources Guide.  Use this guide to learn how to do business research, and to learn more about library resources and technology. 

Your Technology account

  • Email: account used for Blackboard & other official stuff
  • Google Drive/Docs: mimics most Microsoft Office programs; Word, PowerPoint, Excel
    • This tool also allows students to upload Office files for storage online. Conversely, Items created on Google Docs can be downloaded as Office files.
    • Files in Docs can be edited, put in websites, emailed, or shared.
  • Much more: Google Sites, Youtube, and other tools

Student accounts are permanent on request (contact Computer Services). This makes them ideal for portfolios, document storage, and as a long-term communication tool. Instruction on any Google tool can be arranged at the library (630-617-3173).

 Recording Video and Audio

  • Instructional Media center (630-617-3253) has digital cameras/video recorders for student use.
  • The library has computers, software, and equipment (microphones) that can record audio files in a variety of formats.

Study Rooms

  • Study rooms are available in the library for group use, and many come equiped with a large screen television that can be cabled to a laptop for collaberation and presentation practice (cables and study rooms can be checked out at the Circulation Desk).
