Library and Information Technology

LIT is here to help the campus community integrate Library and IT resources and services into the fabric of the College, and to guide the development of strategies for their use in the future.


  • Antivirus Software Update

    New Antivirus Software For Ursinus Faculty and Staff.


    After an extensive period of testing and evaluation, the college has decided to end our relationship with our previous anti-virus vendor Sophos, and adopt a new anti-virus software, Palo Alto Traps Antivirus; consequently, if you have Sophos installed on your computer you need to take action to keep your computer protected.


    All Ursinus faculty and staff issued computers are impacted.


    An email with information was sent to those needing to update their computers.  If at any time you have a question, or if you’d like to speak to someone to assist, please call Tech Support at 610-409-3789 or stop by and we can help. 


    You should be on campus to install.

  • LIT is Seeking Participants to Help Us Improve our Web Resources

    The Library and IT (LIT) Department is seeking faculty, staff, and student volunteers to participate in interviews focused on the accessibility and usefulness of LIT websites. A student worker will conduct the interviews and your responses will remain confidential. 

    The interview should take approximately 30 minutes but we have blocked off an hour just in case. Please sign up for a time slot on this website:

    Thank you for your interest and participation! We hope to use the data collected to help us improve our web resources.

  • Don’t risk data loss! Back Up Your Data!
    Your documents take time and effort. Back up your hard work.

    It can be disastrous when your hard drive crashes and you need the information. There are ways to prevent catastrophic data loss and these ways are referred to collectively as “backing up”.  Backing-up means copying your files to a separate location.  Information and instructions can be found here:
