Technology Literacy a Necessity in the 21st Century
According to one state agency, "Information and Technology Literacy is the ability of an individual, working independently or with others, to use tools, resources, processes, and systems responsibly to access and evaluate information in any medium, and to use that information to solve problems, communicate clearly, make informed decisions, and construct new knowledge, products, or systems."1
This website will introduce Eastern University students to the array of the technological tools available on campus. It is hoped as students prepare their assignments use the productivity applications, such as Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint, in their dorm or in the campus computers labs that they will be aware of the powerful tools they have at hand for academic success.
This is site is not comprehensive in scope. Many of the tools shown here have features beyond those presented in our tutorials. We hope that this will be a starting point for exploration of the many ways that the productivity and communication tools displayed here can enhance the academic careers of Eastern University's students,
This site has been developed by librarians at Warner Memorial Library on the St. Davids campus. However, the librarians work in concert with the other departments at Eastern University. For support on technical issue, please, contact the fine staff of Eastern University's Department of Academic Computing.
Here is a video tour of Warner Memorial Library. This video highlights the important resources and services available on Eastern University's campus in St. Davids, PA.
