Technology in the Library

The library has always been a great place to work independently or in a group.  Two new pieces of equipment are here to help whether you need to practice a presentation, interview for a job, grad school, or internship, or if you have a group project and one desktop computer is cramping your collaborative style.  

The media:scape collaboration stations are located in the Reference Commons on the Main Level, between the Stafford Reading Room and the Study Carrels. Up to six laptops can be plugged in to each station.  Students can share what's on their computer screens on the large display screens, allowing for a conversation and collaboration.  Though a simple touch of a finger users ca switch between any of the collaborator's screens giving everyone a chance to display and put forth their ideas. See the media:scape guide for set-up and FAQ

The Jacobs room Video Communication Stand is the perfect piece of technology for your video needs.  Students can record themselves practicing a presentation, or  use video meeting services such as Skype and Google Voice for interviews.
