Dorm Labs Upgraded to LCD Monitors
In April, 2011, the computer labs in Brandt, Olson, Ylvisaker, and Farwell were upgraded from CRT monitors to flat-screen LCDs. With these upgrades, all residence hall labs now have this newer, more efficient technology. Aside from the user seeing a clearer, sharper image, this upgrade achieves a 70% in-use energy reduction when compared to the old CRTs. Here is what Energy Star has to say about it.
Double Sided Printing
Double-sided printing is now available in the following spaces. In addition, when replacing new units we are planning on purchasing printers that permit double-sided printing.
Color printing is available in the Library Main Floor Lab.
