SLIS Library Computer Lab after remodeling

The SLIS library computer lab has been remodeled this summer. The brand new computer lab is now open for SLISers to use! There are computers, scanners, and LIS applications in the lab for teaching and workshops. SLIS students are welcome to use the resources in the lab whenever there is no reservation. The reservation status is updated on the website (,30)). And the hours are basically the same as the SLIS library, except that the lab opens 15 minutes later and closes 15 minutes earlier than the library. Also, there are basic instructions for printing and scanning. You can follow the instructions near the printer and the scanner step-by-step. If you have any questions or suggestions about the lab, or if you notice some problems with the lab resources, please e-mail lab PA at ttsai5 AT wisc DOT edu, or leave a message on the sheet which is attached to the computer desk in the back of the lab. We will get back to you soon.

Anyway, welcome to the brand new SLIS library computer lab! You can explore more on the computer lab website (
