Docs for Collaboration
Google Docs (referred to here as Docs) is free to all LLI members who have an LLI account (such as firstname.lastname@example.org). It is a word processing application, very similar to Microsoft Word, but you don’t have to pay for it and it resides in the Cloud so you don’t have to install it on your computer,
In case of emergency on campus
Should there be a serious emergency – medical, fire, etc. – call TWO numbers in the order below.
First call: 9-1-1
For Dutchess County Emergency Services. It is available 24/7.
Second call: (845) 758-7777 or from emergency call boxes: 7777
For Bard College Emergency Medical Services (a trained campus emergency response team).
Bard EMS is always to be called second. While the service provides the fastest response, it follows the college academic schedule and is therefore not always available.
