A huge thank you to everyone who submitted an infographic. Determining first, second, and third place was a very difficult with only a few points separating everyone. All of the submissions show a great deal of skill, talent, and hard work. All the entries may be viewed here.

Wireless Networks Across Campus

Information Technology worked to simplify the wireless network on campus. You will need to connect to the wireless network by searching for “Faculty/Staff” or “Student” as appropriate. You will use your Stetson username (the first part of your email address before the @ symbol) and password to connect to the network. Once you have connected for the first time, you will no longer need to enter this information in the future.

In all residence halls, the wireless network remains “Stetson University” and requires no login information. While the duPont-Ball Library has both the “Stetson University” as well as the new “Faculty/Staff” and “Student” wireless networks, “Stetson University” would be the preferred network to connect to as it covers the entire building.

3D Scanning and Printing

Interested in 3D printing? Want to know about the many ways this technology can help with your classes? The duPont-Ball is here to help. We have three 3D printers and a 3D scanner. You can use the two MakerBot printers to 3D print from pre-made files, from your own models, or from a scan of your favorite object. The options are endless.

The duPont-Ball Library also owns a UPrint SE Plus 3D printer. The printer offers high-end ABS filament printing with dissolvable rafting/scaffolding. Because of the cost of this machine and the cost of the materials to support it, this printer is restricted to academic print jobs by appointment Monday-Friday beginning at 8:30 am. Print jobs must be completed by 5:00 pm. Other print jobs may be done any time the library is open on the library’s two MakerBot printers which do NOT require reservations.

To reserve a time to use the printer visit this page.

Ask at the Circulation Desk for more information and to use the printers and scanner. These tools are available for student use during the hours the library is open. All 3D printing jobs must be finished 15 minutes before closing time.
