The majority of the microcomputers, Macintoshes, workstations, printers and graphics equipment supported by ITC are located in public facilities throughout the Grounds for ease of student access. Software available for these systems includes programming languages as well as word processing, network communications, spreadsheet, mathematical, statistical, and graphics packages.
Access to the Internet is provided on all systems via high-speed interactive terminal access (telnet), file transfer (ftp), electronic mail, Usenet news, the World-Wide Web (WWW), and the Grounds-Wide Information System (GWIS) based on Gopher and WWW protocols. Other on-line information retrieval systems include the University Library Catalog (VIRGO) and the University Directory (whois). Consulting, training, and documentation are available for these services. Additional information about ITC facilities and services is available on-line at www.itc.virginia.edu.
