New "Sandbox" Space Now OPEN!

Our new Collaborative Technology Sandbox space is now open! This renovated space is available for student use and features two large LCD monitors, a touch screen, and abundant Ethernet and power outlets to facilitate the use of technology for study and collaboration. We have also added comfortable, mobile furniture, so that the room can be reconfigured to meet your needs.

This new space was developed with suggestions from students and, now that we have completed the space, we would like your feedback.  Feel free to make comments on the flip chart in the space or to email us (askalibrarian@wofford.edu) your comments and any suggestions that you have.
