Starting on the lower level, you'll find mini-computer labs, known as scholarly workstations. Our scholarly workstations serve unique functions that relate to the physical collections around them. There are several workstation clusters throughout the library, each with six computers and a phone that connects to the Help@Ames Desk. Copiers and printers are located in the service centers for your printing needs.
Each computer has standard office software. In addition, these computers have subject specific resources pertaining to the disciplines in the area, integrating spatially the print with the electronic collection. Our liaison librarians also have developed Research Guides for each major and program at the university, so students can discover the most relevant information for their projects and papers.
