Library spaces with monitors

he Libraries have several spaces you can reserve for meetings with students and colleagues.

Group Study Rooms

There are several rooms you can reserve for meetings or group study:

  • 180C is within the Studio on the first floor of Wilson.
  • 180D is also within the Studio; it has a dedicated Bloomberg (business) terminal.
  • 107, 111, 112, and 113 are in the main lobby, just past the service desk.
  • 207, 209, 307, and 309 are just beyond the elevators, as shown on the floor plan.

The Wilson home page links to the floor plans. Check with the desk on first floor (call 624-3321) for more information.

Getting Connected!
The monitors in the Wilson Research Collaboration Studio all have HDMI cables (like you use for your tv and dvd player, for example.) The rooms in the main lobby have VGA and DVI connections. If you need to borrow an adaptor/dongle, ask at the information desk on first floor.IMG_7165 connection instructionsNeed to meet with a group and use a large monitor?

There is currently one available room in the new Wilson Research Collaboration Studio, room 180C, with a capacity of eight.

 

The Studio has several additional monitors at tables  out in the open. The monitors in the Studio have HDMI cables (same as those used for smart tv or dvd player connections.)  For your laptop you can check out a dongle/adaptor kit from the information desk in the first floor lobby.IMG_7163 monitor + hdmi cables

All About Pauly 2017 Guide

Here’s the updated edition of All About Pauly. Holdings remain consistent but the print volumes are no longer non-circulating, and have been moved from first floor Wilson to the general collection.  We have full online access for University of Minnesota affiliates, and for visitors to campus libraries.  Print volumes listed include permalink to our library catalog record, so that you can check availability before coming to the library.

Wilson Periodicals moved

The big Wilson moves are well underway.

The basement Periodicals room is nearly empty. The Periodicals have moved up to 3rd and 4th floors of Wilson.  Bound and Unbound are shelved together, title by title.

Here’s the new floorplan

When was this announced?
In our continuum publication, October 2016, along with other changes, in the paragraph

Other Wilson Library Updates
Periodicals and Dewey Decimal collections moving
The east section of the fourth floor of Wilson Library will re-open before Finals Week, providing additional study space. The area has been closed since late August, allowing staff to process the relocation of collections classified with the Dewey Decimal system. Some of these Dewey materials will be re-classified into our Library of Congress system and remain in Wilson, while others will be moved to off-site storage.

The bound and current periodicals, in the basement of Wilson Library, will be relocated to the third (N-J) and fourth A-M) floors.

Here are a few photos to show the changes; visit Wilson and explore if you plan to use the collections here in the coming months. (I had to do this myself!)
