Expanded computer lab in library on tap

Students taking summer classes might have noticed the new desks in the computer area on the first floor of the library.

Information Services and Technology Chief Information Officer Bill Wilson said machines from the fourth-floor lab are being moved down to the first floor.

Moving the computers is part of several changes IS&T has in store. It will also be offering iPads at Mobile Campus.

Adding tablets to the laptop computers available for checkout might not lead to a decrease in the number students circling the computer labs while waiting for a machine to open up during busy times.

The iPads and laptops don’t have heavy-duty software such as Photoshop, so desktop computers are expected to remain in high demand.

It’s possible more computers could be added later. An official announcement on the computers in the first-floor library lab is expected in the fall.
