Collabratorium Use

The Library Collabratorium

The Library’s Collabratorium provides computer classroom space for library-based information literacy instruction. Its proximity to the Library also allows classroom instructors and Academic Support Services personnel to dedicate time so that students can perform research for class projects. When not in use for library-based instruction or for dedicated research sessions, the Collabratorium provides additional computing space on campus for students.
