The Library Technology Lab is Officially Open for Business!

3 weeks ago we held the official opening event for our new Library Technology Lab! It was a lot of fun, and we had a chance to show off a lot of the technology we have available to our College of Medicine patrons for checkout. Check out the time lapse video below and see if you can spot yourself amongst the crowd of eager visitors.

Of huge interest was the pair of Google Glass that we have. It was unfortunately experiencing some technical difficulties at the time, but we’re working with Google to try and get those resolved. We’ll be sure to keep you updated about when it will be available to play with again.

It can tell time AND do math! Wow!

We also held a raffle. The entire event was “Back to the Future” themed, so naturally we had to raffle something that was a little retro, yet cool. Congratulations to our winner, we really hope you enjoy your brand new Calculator Watch!

In case you missed the event, you can check out the entire list of items we have available for checkout on the new Technology Equipment page on our website. Also, please feel free to stop by the Library Technology Lab if you ever want to get some experience with a device before you buy it, have any questions about your device, or want to check if we have anything new. Raney Collins, the library staff member running the lab, will be happy to chat with you. If you’d like to make an appointment to see her, you can contact the lab at medlibrarytech@ucf.edu or fill out this form.
