Using the Library to Attend Remote Classes (Connect to Zoom in the Library)
When students who are on campus need to participate in a remote class, the Walker Library can help in the following ways.
Students can use the library space to connect to their remote class using their own device. You should use your own headset to connect to audio (the library does not currently loan headsets). If you do not have a headset, you should use your own device in one of our study rooms, so you do not disturb those around you.
Students can borrow a library laptop from Technology Services on the first floor, just past the elevators; all laptops have a camera, speakers, and a microphone. You should also use your own headset on the laptops, or use a study room as stated above.
Zoom is deployed on all the library computers. Many of these computers do not have a camera or speakers/microphone, so you will need to connect to audio using your own headset. The library Windows PCs can accommodate a single jack headset with microphone like you would use on a cell phone to go hands free, or a USB headset with microphone. Library Macs allow a USB headset and also have a single headset jack on the back of the machine.
The 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor study rooms are equipped with monitors with built-in cameras, speakers, and microphones. The 2nd floor study rooms are first come, first served. The 4th floor study rooms must be reserved. The 3rd floor study rooms are also first come, first served, except for those in the Curriculum area which are for use by graduate students and must be reserved.
