Do you allow email? My instructor said I need to use the Internet to email him/her.

  • The Internet computers in the Library are primarily for research activities, particularly since many of our online  databases are available via the Web. You may use the Internet computers for course-related email (e.g. to email your instructor or communicate with other students in your online classes), or for personal email.
  •  However, if all computers are being used and you are doing personal email, you will be asked to give up the computer to a student who needs to do research.

Why are your computers so slow?

  • Our Internet connection is a T1 line through the Los Angeles County Office of Education, which has many other users besides Rio Hondo College. Some times of the day are just busier than others! You can count on it being slower in the peak morning hours, and faster in the late afternoon and evening.
