On June 22, 2015 Dartmouth will hold Service Awards events for staff who’ve worked at the College for 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 years consecutively as of June 30, 2015.

This year, 11 ITS employees will be included in the celebration. Two of them, Derrol Carter and Stephen Glinos, have worked as user support technicians in the Computer Store for 35 and 25 years, respectively.

When you visit a Dartmouth website that requires your Dartmouth username and password, you should look for a GREEN URL. If it’s NOT Dartmouth green, don’t proceed.

Any Dartmouth website that requests login info should have the GREEN bar. This  includes sites protected by WebAuth ( such as Banner, Canvas, Kronos, and Library Services) and Blitz Web, Calendar, and OneDrive.

We’ve recently added these green extended digital certificates to our websites to help you avoid being phished.

In such a fast-paced intellectual environment, scientists need information technology that can keep up with their research. Dartmouth’s new high-speed research network, the Science DMZ, will now quickly transfer the large files associated with the field.

Usually, when we think of a DMZ, a demilitarized zone, we see images in our mind’s eye of neutral territory between...
