Shaw Go WiFi in the Library

Good news for Shaw Internet customers - Medicine Hat College is now a Shaw Go WiFi Zone!  This means that Shaw has installed a WiFi network throughout the campus, including the Vera Bracken Library, which anyone with a Shaw email account can access. 

Any data you use while connected to the Shaw network will be deducted from the monthly allotment of your specific residential internet package.  After you log in for the first time, your device will always reconnect automatically with no need to enter your username and password again. More details are available here.

To get started, connect to the ShawOpen network and open your web browser to authenticate:

Don't worry, this does not mean you must be a Shaw customer in order to access WiFi at MHC.  We do still offer free WiFi access through the college's own network.

New seating in the Library Café

Just in time for the fall semester, Library Services has installed brand new seating in the Café Corner area in the Vera Bracken Library.  The chairs and loveseats that previously occupied this area have been moved out and replaced with super comfortable, leather-style loungers with built-in swivel tables!
