Library Restores Connectivity and Power in Study Area

DTK_5492At the beginning of March, workmen installed power and data into many of the carrels and tables around the library. With the addition of the seven tables along the back wall, carrels by tech services, the reference desk, and the new hallway; wireless, data, and electrical capability are strong once again in the student study areas at Dana Library allowing patrons more opportunity to use power and data.

This increased connectivity was needed. You may have noticed with the addition of the Larner classroom, the study area moved from the front to the back of the library reducing the number of tables and carrels with power and data temporarily. The new study area of the library had less than half the connectivity and power available in the former space. The wireless capability has now tripled and data ports and electrical outlets are available at nearly all study tables and carrels.

Now nursing, health science, and medical students are able to study in the library without worrying about electricity or losing data. This upgrade is a final stage of the collaboration to build the classroom with the College of Medicine.
