Staff Network Accounts

All staff members are provided network accounts.  Please maintain this account properly.  A private folder is provided for you on the M drive.  Please delete files that you no longer use from this folder.  Also, files should not be kept on your local hard drives, please move your folders and files to your folder on the M drive.  If your account is tampered with or you are unable to log in, please report this immediately to the online help desk.

Student Network Accounts

All students are provided network accounts.  If a student account is not working properly, please report this to the online help desk.


Logging On to the MPSRI Network

Every account holder (student & staff member) will need to log onto the network.  When the computer is turned on there will be a screen prompting you for your network username and password.  The domain (log on to) should say MPSRI. 


Saving Files on the M drive

Every account holder or user has a home directory mapped to drive M: for storing files on the server.  It is good practice to use this network directory for storing files because it is regularly backed up.  You are the only person who has access to files stored on your home directory. 

Once you have logged in, your documents should be saved in the M drive:

  1. Select File then Save as

      2. Select your user name (M:) from the save in drop down

  1. Name your file and select Save


Printing Options

Every computer on the network should have a printer designated as the default printer.  It is generally the closest in proximity to your room or in the room. 

If you are prompted to select a specific printer, from the Printer Name box click on the down arrow and double click the printer you would like to use.


Troubleshooting printers:

  • Make sure you have selected the correct printer
  • Make sure the printer is on and online
  • Make sure there is paper in the printer
  • Make sure your printer is not out of toner


Logging Off

Please be sure to log off of a PC when you are done working on it.  Please note that the types of access and user rights provided to the staff are different than those assigned to the students.  Sharing your password or not logging off a computer presents security risks to your information as well as our network.  Select Start and Log Off...

allowing students to design, explore, experiment, access information, and model complex phenomena."-Goldman, Cole and Syer (1999)
