Timed Logout Pilot

In order to determine if service can be improved and the availability of computing can be increased, a pilot project involving the computers on the third floor of the library has been implemented. These computers will automatically lock if left idle for 10 minutes and logout after 45 minutes of inactivity.

This project will run from 2/25/16 through 3/31/16.

Please contact library@mtu.edu if you have any questions or would like to comment.
