Collaboration Stations are Up and Running!

President Laurie Joyner, assisted by Kristen Peters, cuts the ribbon to officially open the Collaboration Stations in Thomas Library.

The Collaboration Stations in Thomas Library had their official kick-off on Thursday, October 11, 2012. These stations are designed to help collaborative work in the library by allowing students, faculty, staff and community members who are working with students, to gather around a large flat-screen monitor. Monitors may be connected to laptops, smart phones, tablet computers or wireless keyboards and mice which can be checked out from the circulation desk.

The kick-off event was well attended by faculty, staff and students from across campus.

To implement this project Wittenberg Librarian, Kristen Peters, applied for grant funding from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services, which was awarded by the State Library of Ohio.

Two Collaboration Stations on the main floor are open during library hours and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Two additional Collaboration Stations are located in group study rooms on the third floor of Thomas Library and can be reserved at the circulation desk.
