New Technology in the Media CenterJanuary-13-2017
The Paul Meek Library’s Steven E. Rogers Media Center made the nice list and Santa delivered some new technology goodies for the upcoming year. Heading up the list is the arrival of four Ipad Air 2’s. As these computers were purchased through the technology fee funds, they are available for student check-out only. They can be checked out for the day and, as a trial for the spring semester, they are for in-house use only. Still available and still as hot as ever is 3-D printing and for $.15 per gram, library patrons can come to the media center and choose from a variety of objects to be printed. Cost varies based on the weight of the printed object and possibilities include everything from the Eiffel Tower to Captain Skyhawk. All library users are encouraged to request items for the media center to purchase. Requests can be made by filling out an electronic request form on the library’s webpage or by visiting the media center and making the request in person. Lately, requests have included everything from television series to battery chargers to USB memory card readers and Mac and PDC-adaptable wireless keyboards and mice.
