Know that feeling when you return to your office computer for the first time in a year and need to sit through a half hour of updates? Put your computer to sleep instead of shutting it down - this will allow updates to be applied automatically.

Accessing the journals you need is also a breeze when using the search option on the Libraries’ page (http://library.unc.edu/) or by appending “http://libproxy.lib.unc.edu” to the journal URL. For instance, JSTOR articles can be accessed by using https://www-jstor-org.libproxy.lib.unc.edu/ [LINK]

TAKE YOUR WORK WITH YOU (if you really feel like it)
Summer usually means research and writing time. For (most) any device you use, Office 365 (http://heelmail.unc.edu) provides tools to write using Word, collaborate with Teams, and back up your work to OneDrive.

Did you know that it’s easier than ever to report phishing, or to add a sender to Safe senders? Click the three dots in any message to access a selection of menu options, including security options.

Happy summer Tar Heels! OASIS has compiled a list of computing tips to keep you and your tech safe over the summer!
