Reserve Stations

What are the Reserve Stations for?

The reserve stations are designed for students needing to do specialized work with computer applications that are not available on the regular workstations in the Meriam Library 116 computer lab. Students can use these workstations to work on their school assignments or projects. In addition, students may install software on these workstations for academic purposes. Please note that all software installed by students on the reserve stations will be deleted after its use.

There are two PC reserve stations, and two Macintosh reserve stations.

Students may also request that additional software be installed on these workstations if a class requires the use of software that is not currently installed on these systems. The current list of software available on these machines can be read on our lab software page.

Where are the Reserve Stations Located?

The three reserve stations available for use are located in the Meriam Library 116 computer lab. They are located in the far right corner of the lab as you walk in through the main lobby of Meriam Library.
