Your Library is here to support your learning experience and to help you to get the skills that you need to be independent in your studies. This induction guide will help you get started with logging into your student/staff account and using your Library.
Once you have received your student/staff ID card, we suggest that you follow these first steps to help you get started with your account:
MyDay is your student portal. Here you will find links to:
You can also access your student account information:
Remember to save your work regularly in the correct place.
Your storage areas:
Your Home Drive is your personal storage area on the college network. When using a college computer this can be found by opening My Computer and is identified by your student number or staff ID. Your H drive is not accessible out of college.
Do not save to the Desktop or any other folder, or work will be cleared when you log off.
You will also receive online storage with Microsoft OneDrive. If you save your work to OneDrive you can access your files from anywhere, on any device. You can also share documents with others and work together.
OneDrive can be accessed via MyDay. When using Microsoft Office look for the OneDrive icon when saving your work.
We recommend that you use online or external storage (external hard drive, USB) to back up your work.
Saving work on Macs: If you are working on a Mac you always need to save online or externally. The Macs do not connect to your H drive.
Printers are found in the libraries and in other areas on each campus. You can print, photocopy and scan to your student/staff email.
You will need to register your ID card at one of the printers by using the card reader. Then enter your student email address (email@example.com) or staff ID and password. Once registered, scanning your card on the reader will log you in automatically. Any printing you have sent will be waiting to be released. You need to remember to log off when you have finished.
All students are given a starting allowance for printing and copying, scanning is free. When your credit runs out you can purchase extra at the Library desk.
Wifi is available to use on every campus. Simply choose the TMC network and log in with your student email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) or staff ID and password.
