Support services are available for both students and faculty within D2L. Use the links below to find help without having to log in to D2L

Public patrons may use the library computers and print using the HCPL or MCPL card number.

The password requirements for Activating Borrower’s Card have also changed. Instead of a 4-digit pin, users are now required to enter at least an 8 character long password that meets 3 of the 4 criteria:

  •          Contains an uppercase letter
  •          Contains a lowercase letter
  •          Contains a number
  •          Contains a special character (!@#$%%^&*()?)

Other guests without a public library card must have a temporary account created at the ADA service desk station. Guests must present a driver's license.

Passwords are now created by the guest. Passwords must meet the following requirements:

  • Must contain 3 of the following conditions
  • Upper case letter
  • Lower case letter
  • Number
  • Special character
  • Doesn't have invalid special characters 
  • Doesn't contain spaces
  • Minimum of 8 characters
  • Maximum of 16 characters
  • Both fields match

 

After the Guest Access account is created and approved, which includes clicking the box email credentials,  the guest will receive the following email:

Thank you for registering with the Lone Star College guest account system. Here is your username. You may use this account to log into Lone Star College general use computers or the wireless network with the name "LoneStar".

Username: GST-___________

This account will automatically delete after 14 days of inactivity. Please do not save any critical files to our system.

 

The username seems to be a variation of their name with GST- in front of it. If they type their name all in lower case, then their username will be all in lower case. 

The password is created exclusively by the guest and not visible to approvers nor is it emailed.  The guest will have to remember what password they created.  

UHD students have free printing with their tuition.


SERVICES 

UHD Computer Lab is located in CLA 104

Hours: Monday - Thursday 4:00 - 9:00

Students are welcome to use the Library space and computers. Direct them to their assigned lab for FREE printing. A lab assistant is always present to help them in CLA 104.

 

If a UHD student shows up earlier than the lab is open or on a Friday you can direct them over to the Advisor’s office in Admissions/Advising Area. They need to ask for Mandy Danley (281-318-4339, Danleym@uhd.edu) at the Advising front desk during regular business hours and she should be able to assist them. 

If they show up on a Saturday they would either need to come back on another day if they don’t want to pay for printing and if they insist on printing that day they would need to pay for the services.  

Dual credit and early college students are registered Lone Star students. They have the same rights and privileges as our regular students. 

They are encouraged to get a public library card to check out material due to system registration technicalities with expiration dates.
