Web View | Print View

by Kenneth Chan

Have you visited Meyer Library lately? Here's a brief tour of the latest services and facilities that Academic Computing offers there.

Meyer First Floor Computers and Study Areas

The Meyer lobby continues to be a favorite spot for students to study and socialize in a casual "living room" space. Users have access to cluster Macs and PCs, quick email kiosks, laser printing, the GroupSpace collaborative computing area. There's also the extremely popular 24-Hour Study Room for silent study. As of Fall 2007, Academic Computing no longer manages the Meyer 183 and 184 classrooms.

Meyer Second Floor Tech Desk, Multimedia Studio, and Clusters

The second floor is the home of the Meyer Tech Desk and the Multimedia Studio.

The Studio is your one-stop shop for digital video editing, DVD burning, and image scanning and editing technologies. We specialize in supporting Apple iLife, Final Cut Studio, and Adobe Creative Suite. There are also Macs and PCs on the second floor outside of the Studio for non-multimedia work, with software offerings including Microsoft Office and Visual Studio, Stata Intercooled, and Mathematica.

Meyer Consulting and Other Tech Desk Services

If you have questions while using our clusters or need help with a multimedia project, you will find our friendly staff of student consultants at the Meyer Tech Desk. At the Desk, we also offer Equipment Checkout, Poster Printing, and a Lost and Found service. With your SUID card, you can checkout a miniDV camcorder, Macbook laptop, or one of the many other items we offer for overnight checkout.

The consultants are ready to assist you, whether you need help with technical problems, need to add money to your SUID card, or left your wallet in one of our comfy armchairs. Interested in being a consultant? Please apply for the best student job on campus!
