The new Multimedia Study Room is downstairs by the Stacks. It can be used by a group or an individual with a technology-related need. Uses include:

  1. View a DVD or streaming video on the room’s 60-inch display.
  2. Work on a document or presentation as a group.
  3. Use the webcam with Skype or Google Hangouts.
  4. Record yourself practicing a speech or presentation.
  5. Connect your personal laptop to the display.

This new room is located on the first floor of the Law Library, with the same general checkout rules as other study rooms. To ensure availability, advance reservations will be accepted for this room.

Speak to a Law Library staff member at the Service Counter for more information.
