There are a few other things you should know about the changes in FOL benefits.
FOL members at all levels of membership can use the 2-hour guest computers, but they still need to setup a Library PIN first. FOL members at any level can no longer use the regular computers or express computers in the Research Commons.
Sustaining and Contributing level members can now checkout netbooks. But they do this from the Book Checkout counter, not the Research Commons. The Book Checkout counter is also where Sustaining and Contributing members sign up for temporary wifi accounts. These accounts are active until the end of the current academic period. For instance, a Sustaining member signing up today would have an active wifi account only through May 27th. The relevant periods are Fall (Sept – Dec.) Spring (Jan – May) and Summer (June – Aug).
Lifetime members are now equivalent to Regular members in terms of benefits unless they pay extra for either Sustaining or Contributing level privileges on a annual basis.
Finally, Contributing level members can use designated workstations in Digital Media Studio.
