HELP US RECYCLE - Bring your used ink cartridges to our meetings

Tuesday February 9, 2016

e-Books, e-Readers
and other "E" stuff you can do on-line

Presented by
Sandra Ruth, LCCUG President


 

At our regular Feb 9 meeting LCCUG President, Sandee Ruth, will demonstrate Hoopla and some of the many other electronic resources available at our area public libraries.  Lorain County has 8 different library systems, offering an array of various services to their patrons.  You will see which digital services are available from which library.  There are really exciting things that you can use from your computer,  tablet, or smart phone.


One of the new resources is Hoopla ... now available at many of the local public libraries.  All Hoopla content is available on demand.  No holds necessary.  No waiting. Users can watch or listen to their selections via online streaming or by temporarily downloading selections to a mobile device for viewing without an internet connection.

Hoopla's digital collection counts tens of thousands of titles - some 100,000 CDs; 10,000 audiobooks; 3,000 movies; and 500 TV series - and continues to expand. We will also learn about E-books, audiobooks, videos and movies from OneDrive as well as music from Freegal.  Additionally discover how you can read entire current magazines on your favorite device.

 

Other incredible resources we will look at are automotive diagrams and repair information, great tools and apps to learn a new language, directories to look up the value of antiques, and genealogy and local history information. Learning games and books for children are impressive too.  Learn of hundreds of free online courses that are available.  These classes will teach you to use social media, create a webpage, how to use Microsoft Office, and so on.  There are classes to help you in a career or with a personal interest.   Let’s explore and make sure we know of all the kinds of on-line and “E” resources and programs that are available.

We will raffle off a 64 GB USB Flash Drive !!

Please join us for this incredibly informative and interesting presentation.  Bring a friend!!

As usual, there will be a question and answer period and refreshments provided.  Please plan on attending this interesting meeting.   THANK YOU!

The How's and Why's


Presented by
Neil Higgins

Think about the last time you backed up data on your computer. NEVER? 

What happens when you have the inevitable hardware failure or a theft? 

What about just plain human error, or a virus that wipes your hard drives?

LCCUG’s March 2016 presentation will talk about methods to back up

and protect your valuable data.  We will discuss what software you may need. Some software is already in Windows! We will also discuss some suggested freeware solutions. What about hardware? What about the Cloud? Internal or external? We’ll talk about these issues and much much more.
 

The Windows 10 free upgrade time clock is counting down.  If you want to  take advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 10, you should start by
making a complete backup of your computer’s hard drive & Operating
System.  In the unlikely event that you have an issue with the upgrade,
you can always restore your computer to its pre-upgrade state if you have
a backup safely tucked away.

Please join us for this informative and very  important presentation.
