The library has nine technology-equipped spaces that faculty and staff can reserve for classes or meetings. For more information, see Available Spaces.
The Library has four Collaboration Stations available. Collaboration Stations are mobile TVs equipped with Solstice Pods, which allow devices to connect wirelessly to the TV display. Multiple users and devices can connect simultaneously. Each device can share an unlimited amount of items on the screen, including live desktop, photos, videos, documents, and presentations. Users can also arrange how content is displayed on the TV screen. The Stations are compatible with PC and Mac computers, iPhones, Android phones, and tablets. Group projects, meetings, and any other collaborative discussion can start off quickly and easily at a Collaboration Station. Stations are located in the Idea Space and first and third floor study rooms. Collaboration Stations are available on a walk-up basis.

The Equil SmartMarker uses an electronic marker casing with a regular whiteboard marker inside and a magnetic whiteboard sensor to record notes digitally. The sensor can be paired with a computer or mobile device via the free Equil Note app. Once paired, notes taken on the white board are recorded and displayed in the app as they are written. With the app, the notes can be streamed live to other devices, as well as saved, edited, and shared later. The marker can record notes in four colors and has a smart eraser for fixing mistakes. Available for four-hour checkout. Students may use the Marker within the library; university faculty may use outside the library. The SmartMarker is available on a walk-up basis.

The Viz Wall is available by walk-up or with an Idea Space reservation.
