In response to demand, the Media and Digital Resources Lab, located on the First Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library, now offers the Apple iWork software package on its Macintosh computers.  This package includes applications:  Pages, a page design, layout, and word processing applicaiton; Numbers, a charts and spreadsheet application; and Keynote, a presentation application.  (Keynote is the presentation software that Al Gore used to create the visuals for An Inconvenient Truth).

Although many students have already purchased iWork applications (which prompted the library's purchase), some may ask about how to obtain the software.  It's easy.  Apple sells the licenses for $19.99 per application on its App Store.  The App Store is part of Mac OS X 10.6.6 and later, so it's just a click away.  Click here  for more information.
