Walk-in service also is available in person from the ITaP help desk, located in the Stewart Center on the main floor of the Humanities, Social Science and Education (HSSE) Library, under the mural. The help desk is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and 1 to 6 p.m. Sundays.

After hours you can help yourself by going to ITaP’s searchable knowledge base, GoldAnswers, which contains thousands of articles, many of them Purdue specific, offering definitions of technical terms, step-by-step instructions for solving common problems and troubleshooting tips.
