(Nov 30/12) The internet explorer installed on the computers of the HS library is certainly outdated. The functions that students often use, such as google docs and other productivity tools, are not fully supported by the current version of the internet explorer. And, to my knowledge, this version will soon be obsolete to many other websites and companies such as Microsoft itself. Please consider updating the internet browser (to either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox) and bring the computers up to the modern standard.
Thank you for bringing your concern to our attention. The problem has been identified and resolved so most functionality within Google Docs is now working. The library has the latest version of Internet Explorer that is supported by Windows XP operating system. We will be upgrading to Windows 7 in the summer and our intention is to offer additional Internet browser options as well.
