The Tech Desk, on the library’s Lower Level, is a place dedicated for students to discover, create, and share their digital scholarship.
Tech Desk staff are available to support the technology available including software and tools. For example, check out video cameras, iPads, MacBook Pros (in-library use only), learn to scan your documents digitally, and use Adobe Design Premium CS6, AutoCAD, Office, or a number of other software and tools.
Situated on the north side, the Tech Desk space is surrounded by large windows providing beautiful views of greenery and natural light. There are large collaborative work tables featuring computers with dual-monitors. Comfortable chairs and coffee tables provide a space for reading or studying with a notebook computer. On the east side there are additional computers dedicated for individual work.
We invite you to visit the Tech Desk to check out a video camera to capture movement, an microphone to record sounds, and a MacBook Pro to put it all together in iMovie. At any time during the planning or creation of the project Tech Desk, staff are on hand for a one-on-one appointment or for drop-in questions, offering such help as teaching how to use iMovie or showing how to integrate various forms of media into the final project.
We are happy to provide a wide range of technological support for your digital projects. If we don’t know the answer, we will research possible solutions. We invite you to stop by and use the space, ask a question, or check out equipment. More information is available on our website. Additionally, our knowledge base provides online solutions for common questions and detailed information about the variety of tech tools available.
