UNL Computer Use Policy
Employees and students will claim their university computer ID and password through UNL's Information Service Department.

As part of the SNR Onboarding process, supervisors are asked to provide computer and software needs. The ITS Support will set up the computer and assist new employees with access to the internet, email, and printers.
After a new employee has been entered into the payroll system (SAP), the new employee will be asked to activate a UNL email account. Anyone with an appointment 6 months in length or greater must have a UNL email account. A supervisor may request that an employee with an appointment less than 6 months in duration have a UNL e-mail account.
All computers in classrooms, conference rooms and the auditorium are connected to the same network. When logging onto those machines, the same drives are accessed, based upon the login.
Each person has access to a P drive (personal drive), which only they can access by logging on with their ID/password. If the person does not have a P drive, the Computer Specialist will created. Z drive, which all SNR Employees access; the Z drive is erased every Sunday morning. Regular employees will have access to an S drive, which is used by SNR administration to provide employees with their job description, training records, course evaluations, etc.
Files saved to any networked drive, except the Z Drive, are backed up nightly. To recover a backed up file, contact the Information Technology (IT) group.
To provide optimum efficiency in computer support, SNR will require that all computer purchases be made through SNR Computer Support personnel and will be eligible for Tier 1 service. ITS Support will maintain 99.9% or greater security for P drive, S drive, and network drives. Computers purchased without involvement of SNR Computing Support will be eligible for Tier 2 services; it is recommended that an outside business/person is used for software purchases and installation.
