- Effective May 2011, the Music Library Carrel computers will be moved to the Davis Family Library, as part of the redesign of MCFA.
- As of Spring 2010, due to combined low usage and decreasing funds, LIS has discontinued three computer public labs/classrooms:
- Sunderland ILC1
- Sunderland ILC2
- Davis Family Library 'Mobile Computer Cart'
Note that ILC1 is now a standard SMART classroom, with multimedia projection and a podium/lectern computer; but there will be no computers for the students. The lab has sufficient wired and wireless networking, as well as power outlets, if students need to bring their own computers.
With the renovation of Sunderland 202, we'd like to encourage our community to make use of that classroom instead of ILC1. Room 202 is more spacious and better furnished. We are also in the process of upgrading the computers in that space.
In Spring '09, a new Mac classroom/lab was unveiled - Axinn 105. This space has top of the line Mac computers with the latest video editing software, in addition to the standard Mac OS X applications. ILC2 has been severely underused for a number of years, and we think that the community would be best served by using the new space, Axinn 105, instead.
