How to get an account?

You need to have an IUB NT domain account. If you don't have such an account connect to the UCS's account creation system and follow the instructions you find there. Note that the account creation system demands that you know your network password. If you do not know this password, you will have to go to the UCS office in the Union.
Every student who takes the L542 course, automatically acquires an account on 'ella.slis.indiana.edu'. Ella accounts are different from IUB NT domain accounts in that they have no space limit and no time limit. Thus, you can store your webpages and process information on 'ella' as long as you want - even after you leave SLIS.

Personal organization
You should create subdirectories in your home directory to organize your account. For example, create a directory called L542 in your account. In that subdirectory, create a subdirectory for each project. Thus, for this project, create a subdirectory called project1. Inside this directory do all of the work necessary to complete this project.

How to proceed?

Note: Different browsers and different versions of browsers display webpages in very different ways. For the purposes of this course I am going to use Netscape to view your project results. You may like to make sure that your webpages work properly in the SLIS Shepherd Lab.
Be aware that potential employers may use a different version of Netscape or IE to view your pages. Its always a good idea to check your pages on different platforms!
