Full campus access to log in areas, mail, the internet and a printer. Please note that our printer is not made for large-scale printing jobs. Since we have so many classes in Stein, it is a quick stop for printing mail, power access, and wi-fi as well. We have a new area specifically for users bringing laptops. Our Podcast Room is a sound-reduced area with access to stationary microphones, cameras for recording.

Books may be scanned and transferred to (computer voice) Audio format at the MRC. This is a lengthy process as the book must be approved as having no audio book available through Disability Services, a signed waiver that you approve that your book may be unbound, and the binding removed by Graphic Arts. Then, it can be brought to MRC to be scanned and read by OCR software and (human) proof-read before submission into Kurzweil for text-to-speech. We do this on a first-come, first serve basis. This can also be done for assigned readings.
