Summer 2008 Renovations: More Power

This summer, most of our changes were to the large study area on the main floor of the library. Our primary goal was to make power available to as many of the study tables as possible. This will allow students to charge their laptop computers and keep them charged throughout the day of classes.

We’ve added a new walled study area with outlets along the perimeter, and desktop PC’s available on one wall. Collaboration Station tables are available for students to work together by connecting laptop computer to a large screen visible to all group members

In order to keep much of the space as flexible as possible, outlets have been dropped from the ceiling.

And additional outlets have been added between two rows of tables in our main study area.

We hope that this will allow our students to get the most out of their laptop computers while they are on campus.
