HSLIC beefs up internet access

Students, faculty and others visiting the UNM Health Sciences Center Library and Informatics Center (HSLIC) will find an improved wireless internet connection. The library has upgraded and strengthened it's wireless capacity on all three floors.

Existing wireless access points (WAPs) were replaced, and 16 additional WAPs were installed. That means visitors will find a stronger signal throughout the building, including in group study rooms. HSLIC has two wireless networks: “secure” and “guest.”

The guest network is similar to free wireless netoworks you might find in a coffee shop or other public places. It provides an internet connection for anyone entering the building, whether UNM-affiliated or not, and provides access to some but not all library resources. The secure network is the wireless equivalent of a wired on-campus connection and requires a UNM NetID and password. The secure network provides access to all licensed library resources, file shares (home drive) and materials that must be secured, such as patient information.
