Our Service Points

 ITS Helpdesk operates two service points, each with different staffing, open hours and their own particular focus. 

The Helpdesk

Research / IT

The Helpdesk is located on the ground floor of the CMC. Staffed by both professional and student staff (CarlTechs), this is our center of operations. All services are available at this location, and we're always happy to have visitors. 

The Research/IT desk is a joint service point operated by ITS and the Library. It is located in the middle of the reference room on the 4th (main) floor of the Gould Library. The desk is staffed by reference librarians and CarlTechs who can help you with any problems or questions you have while doing research at the library.
