Himmelfarb Headlines -September / October 2017

What's New at Himmelfarb

What's New at HimmelfarbIn the Bloedorn Technology Center (BTC) on the third floor, all Windows workstations were migrated to Windows 10 over the summer. All workstations now also have licenses to run SPSS, a statistics software package that was on a limited number of workstations previously. B103 workstations now have the complete Adobe Creative Cloud Suite. Select Creative cloud programs, including PhotoShop, were added to Bloedorn workstations.

Students and faculty can check the availability of workstations in the BTC from their home or other locations on campus with a new computer availability service. The web page reports the number of workstations available in each room of the BTC at any given time. Currently the service is only available from on campus or VPN-connected devices.

A number of facilities projects are slated for the fall semester:

The Himmelfarb Library Elevator Replacement Project will begin on September 11, 2017. The estimated completion date is November 29, 2017. There will be no elevator service in the Himmelfarb Library during this time frame.  Library users can expect some construction noise 5-8am on the B2 level. If you are unable to use the stairs and will need access to upper or lower floors of Himmelfarb during this time period, please contact Facilities at (202) 994-2312.

The Ross Hall Air Handler Replacement Project will begin on September 19, 2017. The estimated completion date is May 11, 2018.

Temporary Air Handling units will be installed at the beginning of this project to provide tempered air to the areas affected by the construction during this time frame.

Weekly construction updates will be sent to the SMHS community once these projects begin.  We will communicate them on Himmelfarb’s blog and other social media sites.
