The David Allan Hubbard Library is happy to announce that the Information Access Services desk now offers headphones and USB drives for checkout.
If you want to listen to a video or music quietly but you forgot or don’t have your own headphones, the IAS desk has four (4) over-the-ear headphones for checkout. The checkout time period is two (2) hours, but we can adjust the loan period as necessary (not to go past closing hours).
These headphones may not leave the library, and we will hold onto your Student ID card or other photo ID while you are borrowing the equipment.
Also now available are three (3) USB drives (8GB). These are useful when you want to backup your documents while scanning, if you want to transfer documents from your laptop to a library desktop computer, or if you want to transfer your documents from your computer to your friend’s computer.
Like the headphones, the checkout time period is two (2) hours, but we can adjust the loan period as necessary (not to go past closing hours). When checking out, staff will hold onto your Student ID card or other photo ID while you are borrowing the USB drive.
These USB drives may not leave the library. Each USB drive will be wiped clean upon return. To be sure that sensitive information is kept private, we recommend that users remove their documents from the USB drive prior to returning it to the IAS desk.
If you have any suggestions for additional library- or technology-related services you’d like us to provide, please drop us a note at email@example.com.
Three of David Allan Hubbard Library’s group study rooms (Rooms 308, 314, and 315) are now equipped with a wireless presentation system. See more information on The Quad to get started: http://quad.fuller.edu/2014/12/wireless/
The program will allow up to four people to simultaneously display their laptops’ content on the large flat screen TV that is in each of the above study rooms. This is particularly useful if:
- a user wants to practice a presentation that includes visuals; you can connect your computer easily and stand wherever you want in the room, rather than merely within the length of the cable.
- several students are collaborating on a project and need to display and share information, like deciding which images to put in their PowerPoint, without having to e-mail different suggestions.
- your group is studying for a test in a language class. Users can easily display sentences or phrases on the TV so that everyone can have a go at reading or translating what is displayed.
- a group of psychology students wants to compare data from a series of tests that had been performed; everyone is able to display his/her data.
The system works for PC or Mac laptops. It is not compatible with tablets or smartphones.
The Library’s group study rooms are for groups of two or more Fuller students and members of our staff and faculty. Click here to book a room reservation.
