Arrendale Library Wireless Restored!

Students and faculty on the Demorest campus who rely on the Arrendale Library's wireless network will be glad to learn that our wireless network is available again to support your work. The old network access points have been replaced with enough new, high-capacity units to provide an excellent wireless user experience throughout the 3 floors of the Library.

For more information, including the encryption key or passphrase needed to access the network, see this page on the Working Online Libguide.
