New Computer Lab in 021

Here’s a photo of Steacie’s new Quiet Study lab. It’s open to library users when not being used for instructional classes. Just like the main floor computers, the lab computers require an AcadLabs account or Guest account, and offer much the same software (ask at the Reference Desk for details). The food and drink policy for the lab is the same as for the rest of the library: no food or drink allowed, except for drinks in spillproof cups and capped bottles. The lab’s hours are also posted on the door; it is closed on weekends.
