Computers in Peabody Library
The Learning Commons
The Learning Commons is the library's electronic classroom. It is available for general use whenever no classes are scheduled. Check today's list of room bookings to see today's Learning Commons availability. The Learning Commons has 18 computers, 3 flatbed scanners, and 2 DVD burners. In addition to Office 2007 and Web browsers, the computers have software for statistics, image and video editing, web site development, and disability access. Here is list of all the computers and software in the Heard Library system.
There are iMacs available for public use in the Fireside Reading Room, and in group study rooms 108 and 309.
Grand Reading Room
The Grand Reading Room is the large room on the main floor, near the Service Desk. There are 16 computers available for public use. Due to student requests, Stata is now installed on 8 of these computers.
You can print from any computer in the library (except for the iMac in room 309). Black and white printing costs 4¢ per page if you use your Vandy card, and 10¢ if you pay with cash. Color printing costs 50¢ per page.
There are printers in the Learning Commons and Fireside Reading Room for the computers in those rooms. The color printer is in the Curriculum Design Studio, room 302. Any PC in the library can print to the color printer. There is a single-sided and a double-sided printer available in the Grand Reading Room.
This year we are offering a new series of workshops. There will be four Peabody Library Tech Series workshops each semester, teaching skills that are important to Peabody students. These workshops will help teacher education majors meet licensure requirements, and assist other Peabody students in gaining the skills their professors, and future employers, expect of them. Here is more information about, and links to register for, this semester's workshops.
I offer 2 or 3 workshops per semester on EndNote. Please check our calendar for upcoming workshops. I am happy to meet with anyone to answer questions or provide an introduction to EndNote, or to offer a workshop tailored to your class, research team, or group of friends. Use this form to request an appointment.
