Need collaborative space for group study? Cannell Library has you covered! Reserve LIB 204 or LIB 212 to collaborate more effectively – your plans and ideas can now be displayed on a brand new video monitor so that everyone can see, share, and participate. In these rooms, you can design and practice presentations from a networked library computer, as well as from your laptops and tablets. Have a smaller group? You can check out laptops and LED projectors from the circulation desk and use these tools to share ideas and create exceptional group projects. We’ve upgraded our study spaces with new chairs and tables to provide the most comfortable and efficient space to support your academic success!

Cannell Library now has LED projectors available for all your presentation needs. Project large scale images onto any surface with this powerful tool. This item checks out with several connecting cables, a remote control for easy presentation direction, and a quick start guide to get you started. As you can see in the second image, these projectors support a wide variety of inputs: HDMI, USB cables, SD cards, A/V input, and standard computer cables can all be used as sources for this device.
LED projectors check out for three hours at a time. Be careful with these, because the replacement cost for a lost or broken LED projector is $1000!

Starting this quarter, you’ll find People, Forbes, the Nation, Esquire and other popular periodicals in a new location. Where are they? If you walk in through the main library doors and continue toward the east wall, past the circulation desk, you’ll find them on the north wall up against the librarian’s offices. In other words, walk in, face the reference desk and turn left. Can’t find them? Ask at the reference or circulation desks and a staff member will be happy to assist you.
Periodicals are library use only, but patrons are welcome to use copy machines as long as they observe fair use guidelines.
Recently the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges released a new Open Educational Resources (OERs) website. Open WA provides information on how to find and use learning materials that can be remixed, reused, and redistributed free from copyright restrictions. There’s even a handy Attribution Builder that takes you through the process step by step.
OERs are important because they result in cost savings for students, can address multiple learning styles, improve student information literacy, and increase student interest in the subject being taught.
