Specialized Technology

Your onsite library privileges allow you to use our microfilm readers and scanners, an anatomy visualization system known as the Anatomage Table, and a variety of equipment

The Knox Center located in the Shapiro Library also provides adaptive software and hardware. 

Many of our creation and learning spaces also have special equipment or hardware — from letterpress machines to 3D printers — with experts available to help you learn new equipment. 

Use a high-speed collaborative workstation

Visualization hubs, or VizHubs, are high-powered computers with large display screens for group viewing. You can find one in the Shien-Ming Wu Reading Room on floor 3 of the Shapiro Library and reserve it ahead of time.

There are also 15 VizHubs that can be reserved in an open space on the second floor of the Duderstadt Center where the Art, Architecture and Engineering Library is located.

Listen to and play music 

If you want to listen to music at the Music Library, we have CD player listening stations that are out and available for use in the open study area

There are also four portable CD/DVD drives available at the desk and headphones for borrowing.  

We also have two MIDI keyboards, one each on floors 3 and 5 of the Music Library.
