Have a new electronic gadget? Have questions about it? Others do too, so join them in figuring out some answers at Wright Library's Device Users' Group. On the theory that two or more brains are better than one and that if you are experiencing a problem, someone else is too, we wanted to provide a forum for users to gather and exchange information, helping each other find solutions. In addition, a librarian experienced with numerous devices will be present to offer assistance and provide access to users' guides and other helpful resources.
