Note­book Café

06.09.2002: The widespread use of notebooks to access the service infrastructure has created a need for counselling and training for students who are less familiar with computers and the Internet. This need is to be met by a student-organised notebook café which, in addition to providing Internet access (limited for emergencies) and advice in problematic cases, also develops recommendations for the procurement of hardware and software as well as Internet access options. Closely related to the Notebook Café is the Technology Competence Centre, which is, of course, aimed specifically at women. The Notebook Café - and with it the Technology Competence Centre - is located in the entrance area of the University Library (former group and lecture room). (see also press release from 06.09.2002)
