The Library Classroom, Room 123, is located on the 1st floor of the John C. Pace Library. The Classroom acts as an open computer lab for UWF faculty, staff, and students when the room is not otherwise reserved.
The library classroom contains:
- 30 all-in-one student workstations;
- SMART Board, SMART podium, and two 55-inch LED displays controlled by the instructor's workstation;
- SMART Document camera;
- Instructor podium Laptop connections (VGA, HDMI & Ethernet)
- In-room "voice lift" microphone/speaker system
- DVD/VHS/BluRay players;
- Crestron equipment-control unit.
The computers must be accessed with a current Argonet username & password.
The computers in the classroom are preloaded with the same software that is available on other library workstations. If your instruction session requires other specialized software please note this in your request below. Note: our ability to pre-install some software programs will depend on how it is licensed.
Skylab Main Lab (Room 504)
The room is equipped with Dell OptiPlex Core i7 PCs, your choice of twin or single monitor workstations and WEPA print station. Electric outlets and data ports for laptops and other devices, spaces for group work, scanning equipment for various media, and e-classroom capabilities. Come and complete your assignments or work on group projects in a wireless environment.
Personal assistance with computer software and hardware is available. Experienced library staff and students are available to assist you with the software and hardware located in the Skylab.
The main lab is an open lab environment and students are permitted to speak in a normal voice tone while working on group projects. However, this area is a production lab. If you are disturbing others from their work you may be asked to quiet down. Cell phone calls of long duration should be conducted in the lobby area. If you are using headphones or earbuds you will need to keep the volume down to a level where no one else can hear your audio/music while in the Skylab.
Mornings are generally quiet in the main lab. As the day progresses, more students frequent Skylab and more activity equates to more noise so keep this in mind.
The main lab is a multi-use area and occasionally classes are held in room 504. Depending on the instructor and the number of students attending the class you may or may not be asked to leave the lab until the class is over. This room is equipped with a projector, lectern and screen for instructor use.
