Stack Management-Marston Science Library

Welcome to Marston Science Library and the Smathers Library Domain

  • You will use your Gatorlink account to logon to our Staff computers.
  • If you use Alma, the Staff side of our Library catalog, create a different password for your Alma logon. Never leave a password at the default.
  • Be security conscious!
  • It is against University and Library computer security policies:
    • To share passwords
    • To logon for anyone else - whoever is working at a computer must be the one who is logged on to it.
    • To allow non-employees to use employee computers
    • To download games, etc., from the Web
  • Remember to log off:
    • Before you leave for the day
    • If you must leave your computer unattended for a length of time
  • While browsing the Web, avoid questionable sites, and be careful what you click.
  • Likewise: delete weird email without opening it.
  • Report – immediately – any evidence of virus or spy-ware on your computer!


Computer problems

  • The IT Department takes care of equipment problems. All you need to do is:
    • Report problems (computers, software, printers, network) to your supervisor or to an IT staff member.


Computer maintenance

  • Our computers remain ON - all the time. (Monitors should be turned off when not in use.)
  • Reminder: Users must log off.
  • Downloading your own software or items from the Web onto our computers is not allowed.
  • We provide the software you need for your job.
  • An IT staff member will run new installs, updates and other configuration changes.
  • Be careful not to delete Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts: We provide the shortcuts because we all need easy access to those commonly used programs.
  • Clear your browser cache – on a regular basis. We can show you how.
  • If you make a mistake, don’t panic, we can fix it! But, please let us know.


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Be courteous

  • Remember, computers are supplied to employees for doing work.
  • Limit your personal use of your computer to a reasonable amount of time.
  • Serve your clients first…Library patrons and other Library employees!
