The Help Desk will never ask for your Domain Account password for any reason. Please check our LTS Alerts website for more information on recent phishing scams that have been asking for your password.
As part of our security policy, you should never give your Domain Account information to coworkers, students, spouses, etc. as your account can be used to view your pay stubs, health benefits, and other confidential personal information.

Online training vBooks are typically organized like books, but the chapters you select will typically be a short portion of a technical training class, complete with the instructor and the computer screen projection.

Changing the password
Once you have an account, you can change your password by logging into vBooks and using the Preferences menu.
Help with resetting your password
