Mac users new to SLAC will find helpful information about the Mac environment particular to SLAC in the document Using the Mac at SLAC, Revision 1, May 1993. It is available at the Help Desk in the Computer Building Lobby.

If you are planning to buy a new Mac, consult the document "Recommended Mac Software and Hardware," Revision 1, July 1993. Once you have installed your Mac, you will want to tailor its software. Consult the document "How to Tailor Your Mac for Use at SLAC," April 1993. If you want to access a SLAC file server or login to a host from a Macintosh off-site, consult the document "How to Get Started with AppleTalk Remote Access," May 1993. These documents are available at the Help Desk and can be accessed online, respectively, as the files Public Disk 1: General Help: Recommended Hardware/Software, Public Disk 1: General Help: Tailoring Mac, and Public Disk 1: Things You Need: Networking Tools: ARA: SLAC ARA Documentation.
