Newly expanded computer lab at Dana Library
Rutgers community members now have an attractive new space, with many more options, in the John Cotton Dana Library.
A newly renovated and expanded computing laboratory on the first floor offers 96 all-in-one PCs, a work space for students using personal mobile devices, three black and white printers, and one color printer. New furniture in the computing lab increases student work space. New reservation software being piloted in the laboratory allows students to reserve a computer with the click of a button.
The laboratory will be monitored by a full time employee and three lab consultants, situated at a new service desk located next to the Dana Library Reference Desk.
The Libraries are grateful to Rutgers-Newark Computing Services and Facilities offices for their vision and support, to integrate more public computing into the Dana Library and enable it to become the site on campus with the most computers for student, faculty, and staff use.
