Twelve wireless laptops are available for use within the Kelvin Smith Library. Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat are installed and the laptops are configured to print to the public access printers in the library. The Notebooks have a three hour loan time.
Logitech Laser Pointer (2) 2 night loan
Give your presentations the "green light" with our Logitech laser pointers. These devices have the capability to advice and backtrack slides and even boast a timer feature so you can keep on track.
Garmin eTrex GPS Unit (2) 2 night loan
Why does the library loan GPS units? Because the library has a Center for Statistics and Geospatial Data. You can use these GPS units to go on-site and collect your own GIS data for statistical analysis. They can also be used for the sport "geocaching" as you familiarize yourself with the GPS system. The GPS units have a 48hr loan time.
Logitech Quickcam Webcam (16) 2 night loan
You can use our webcams to video conference with students in other countries to practice your foreign language skills. No special training or software required! Each language lab PC has AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, and Skype
USB Headsets (20) 2 night loan
These USB headphones have surprisingly good microphones on them. They work as a nice complement to the webcams for video conferencing. They are also used by students in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures to record their speech as part of the Online Language Learning Center (OLLC).

If you have a piece of audio or video equipment not listed here (minidisc, for example) bring it in! We have dozens of cables, wires, and adapters to connect nearly everything that makes sound. Challenge us. We may surprise you!

The Freedman Center uses an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 printer for its high quality photographic color prints. This professional imaging system uses an 8-color ink set to provide archival quality prints in a range of sizes, including 8x10, 11x14, and 17x22. Photo prints will be provided only in photo glossy and the larger two sizes are available only by appointment.
For 8x11 color document printing, we offer an HP color laser printer. Printing cost is 50¢ per page.
