New HSL Chromebooks Named After Faculty ‘Rising Stars’

We now have two Chromebooks available for checkout by students (5 days) as well as faculty and staff (4 hours). Both have been named after faculty here at CU Anschutz who have been recognized as “Rising Stars” by the Department of Medicine, Dr. José Castillo-Mancilla and Dr. Kathleen Suddarth. These distinguished faculty members, still in the beginning of their careers, have both already contributed greatly to their fields. See the full article about their recognition here.

The library has added these two Chromebooks in order to expand available options for students who wish to check out laptops. Sometimes students are looking for something lighter than the laptop they have to carry around campus for a few days, sometimes the laptop they have at home has completely crashed and they need to have a way to work on their assignments while it’s being fixed. 

Another reason students check out our laptops is to try out different models they’re thinking of buying. Mike Campbell of the library IT department is a pro at helping folks decide which laptop — of the many options on the market — is the best fit for them. AcerChromebook14-CB3-431-Gold-sku-main-e1471100473570

 Quick points about our new Chromebooks:

  • Do they have Microsoft office?
    • No, they don’t have any desktop software
  • Do they work with Proctorio?
    • Yes, they do
  • Why are they gold?
    • Because it’s pretty

Come check them out and celebrate some of CU Anschutz’s Rising Stars!
