Collaborative Work Spaces

Three areas in the LRC are configured for collaborative work. Two areas along the south wall have six computers, connected to the RLC academic network, and a 60” TV in each. The screen of one of the six computers can be selected to project onto the TV so students can easily work collaboratively on a project, watch a DVD together, etc. Wireless internet is available at the collaborative space on the east wall. Two spaces in this area are open for student to connect their personal devices. Assistance with using the collaborative workspaces is available at the Circulation Desk.
