The 13 computers across from the Check Out Desk on the first floor of
Jackson Library now have dual monitors and are available 24/5! The dual monitors are a great way to have multiple windows open and help make research easier. These computer areas also allow more space for group work.
You have until Friday, March 21 to submit your application for the Undergraduate Research Award!
