There are student-use computers located on the 3rd (Main Entry) Floor, in the Atrium Area on the 2nd Floor, and in the e-Classroom on the 1st Floor. All computers have word processing software. All computers play DVDs and CDs. Please ask for headphones at the Circulation Desk. There are also data ports located throughout the library for laptop connections to the campus network as well as wireless access.
The library provides ample amounts of comfortable study space. However, should you require a personal desk where you can leave research materials for the semester, you may reserve a desk with the Circulation Supervisor provided you are enrolled in semester or senior research. Desks are assigned between the hours of 8:30am and 4:30pm Monday through Friday on a first-come, first-served basis.
Located on the 1st Floor, the e-Classroom is a fully-networked and wireless-enabled computer lab with 18 desktop stations, an instructor's station, an LCD projector, and SmartBoard. Please contact Debby Andreadis or call x6682 if you would like to reserve this room.
This room, located on the second floor of the Library, is a joint effort between the Library and Media Technology Services (MTS). The room has a seating capacity for up to 30 people and may be reserved for the following types of viewing:
- Video: VHS or DVD
- Computer projection
Reservations for the Library Viewing Room must be made in advance by contacting Pam Magelaner or Debby Andreadis/
MTS has modified the room so that it is a self-service room for the above-listed types of viewing. Any equipment problems in the Viewing Room will be addressed by MTS staff.
A limited number of lockers are available for assignment to any Denison student for one semester on a first-come, first-served basis. Lockers are assigned any time when the library is open. See the Circulaton Supervisor on duty.
