Media Services’ Fall Training Schedule

Prior to the start of each academic year, the Media Services Office conducts training for returning student works and student supervisors. This is done so we can provide the best service to those that we serve with the resources we have available. Given the fact that the Media Services Office is only staffed by one […]

VirtualOffice server update

As of this afternoon, we have relocated our VirtualOffice system to a new server.  Using this new server provides us with several advantages and new features.  Most noticeably we have implemented Gustavus Single Sign On for authentication, so if you go to http://mediaservices.gustavus.edu, you will see our “VirtualOffice splash screen” — a quick greeting before you are sent […]

VirtualOffice can also be used by students, faculty and employees of the College to reserve available equipment, submit large format printing requests, and much more. Any person with a Gustavus username […]
