Q. What is a "Smart Room?"

Answer

McDermott Library now provides two Smart Rooms, offering students a new way to collaborate on presentations and class projects. Students can share content from their mobile devices, connect a laptop, record/save/share video (Armadillo Room only), and annotate on screen.

Smart Rooms are available Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. One- or two-hour reservations may be made 24 hours in advance.
