The Windows 10 workstations on all three floors offer a full set of ITS lab applications. You will also find six (6) iMacs with the same software as all of the other iMac equipped ITS labs. Users may also access the Thompson Library’s homepage and its resources from these computers. Networked printing is located on each floor. These workstations help students make optimum use of both ITS software and library resources—including library staff.
The workstations, located in the center rows of carrels running north-south on each floor, offer considerable privacy, and should prove attractive places for students to work on term papers and other assignments requiring sustained concentration. There is also a group project room equiped with eleven (11) VDI computers located on the third floor in room 318. UM-Flint faculty and staff may also use the workstations.
