In addition to the Libraries themselves, and the wires and wi-fi signals that suffuse the campus, LTS maintains and supports equipment in a large number of facilities of various types all over campus, often in coordination with other departments, such as the Registrar, the campus Facilities department, Distance Education, as well as academic departments. These spaces include classrooms with projection equipment, video conference rooms, study spaces, and walk-up service desks.
Detailed information about each location can be found in the Classroom Technology and Public Computers pages. Each location and technology has its own page, with pictures, listings for who to contact about specific items or services in that room, and, where available, step-by-step instructions for using the equipment there.
