In response to your requests, two additional applications have been added to the MSEL public computers. We now have LaTeX, which was suggested in a blog Suggestion Box comment late last year. Now mathematicians and engineers can work on papers in their preferred document preparation program while in MSEL. And thanks to JHU alum Dr. Vogelstein, we have updated LaTeX thesis templates available.
Another highly requested item has been added – Firefox. And within Firefox, we’ve added several plug-ins to allow for easy searching of heavily-used web sites. These include the JHU library catalog, WorldCat, Nature, and other sites like Amazon, Wikipedia, and IMDB. If you need to use a site that requires IE, you will still have access to the Public Web Browser from the desktop.
