Here is information that TAs will need to know.
Audio-Visual Equipment AV Equipment is available in select classrooms. Passcodes and keys are available from Classroom Media Support. LCD computer projectors are reserved and retrieved from the Astronomy, Math and Physics (AMP) Libary, 4220 Chamberlin Hall.
Copying All Math Department employees have access to the department’s Copy Center, located in 220 Van Vleck. To have something photocopied, fill out the request form. Give the Copy Center at least 24 hours to make your copies. For a small job they might be able to do it with in a couple of hours. Larger jobs take longer, especially at busy times such as the beginning, middle, and end of the semester. There are also copy machines available on each floor for departmental use. To operate this machine you will need a code, available from the Computer IT Staff. TAs can make up to 200 copies on these machines per month before being charged.
Email Accounts All Math Department employees are given computer accounts enabling access to computers in Van Vleck. An email account is also provided. All TAs’ email accounts are connected to the ‘graduate student email listserve’. This listserve is the place that important announcements are posted. TAs are responsible to read all pertinent messages on a regular basis (semi-weekly is suggested) and heed all deadlines.
Astronomy, Math and Physics (AMP) Library During the academic year, the library (4220 Chamberlin Hall) is open Monday – Thursday 8:30 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.; Friday 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Intersession and summer hours are Monday – Friday 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Link to the AMP Library website: https://www.library.wisc.edu/amp/
Printing Policy Each user is allowed 250 free pages per month (each side of a double-sided sheet is counted as one page). Beyond that, they are charged 5 cents per page truncated to the nearest whole dollar. A bill is sent via email on the first of each month to those people who have incurred charges. Pay the Department Administrator that amount.
Reserving Rooms You can reserve classrooms for review sessions, makeup exams, or any other purpose. Forms for reserving classrooms are available on the counter by room 213 (the main reception window on the second floor). You should fill out the form at least 48 hours in advance. If you want a room for a regularly occurring event or if you need a very large room, you should reserve it as early in the semester as possible. You can also reserve the conference room (307) or the seminar rooms (901 and 903) directly through the Receptionist. Room 901 has a built-in LCD computer projector and is larger. This room is locked at 3:30pm daily but the key is available in the Library.
Supplies Text books and solution manuals for classes you teach are available to borrow from the Copy Center. Office keys are available from the Chair’s Assistant.
