IT Security Tip
Think before you click. If you receive a message from an unknown sender, think before you open any attachments or click any links within the email. If you are unsure if the email is safe, forward the message to, and we can check it out.

IT Tip
Many text editors and programs allow you to highlight all or portions of text using the shift key and the mouse. For example, place the cursor at the beginning of a paragraph, hold down the shift key, and click at the end of the paragraph to highlight the full paragraph.

Accessibility Tip
When posting a video on your website, be sure to include a link to a closed-captioned version. Videos created by Web Communications always have a closed- captioned version. For videos you create, YouTube can help automate the process.
