  • Loyola – carpet is carpet tiles – easy to pull up to add or relocate electrical outlets – heat came through the floor too.   It needs to change as the students&apos; needs change
  • Group Study Rooms – equipped with computers, tables and whiteboards Digital Media Labs - Media checkout Hard drives Camcorders Cameras Laptops
  • Have 30 of them. Got bigger tables to make room for student&apos;s stuff. Have white boards and computers. Can reserve rooms online.
  • Want to practice a presentation or share notes with classmates? The Library’s third floor Commons area has flat screen televisions available for use with a laptop. Stop by the library’s circulation desk and check out the cables and instructions needed to get connected, rooms are available on a “first come” basis.
