Since 2004, the Auburn University Libraries have subsidized printing in the Media and Digital Resource Lab (MDRL) and while the Libraries will continue to subsidize large format printing, as of May 21, in response to the current economic situation, the MDRL will begin charging a 50 cent per page fee for its color laser printer.  Fees will be billed to users’ bursar accounts in accordance with MDRL printing policies.  Duplex (2-sided) printing and custom paper types and sizes will be available on this printer.  Fees for color laser printing match those of other campus services offered by OIT (the Office of Information Technology) and CopyCat.

Questions about the MDRL printing can be directed to mdrl@auburn.edu, 334-844-7398, or in person at the MDRL located on the first floor of Draughon Library.

At the same time, OIT will begin operation of a color laser printer in their lab located on the third floor of Draughon Library. Duplex printing or custom paper will not be available on this printer but it will be accessible from all of the OIT computers in the library.

Questions about the OIT printing can be directed to the OIT Help Desk at helpdesk@auburn.edu, 334-844-4944 or in person on the third floor of Draughon Library.

The Media and Digital Resource Lab, located on the First Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library, now provides a Lab Use link located in the upper left hand side of the MDRL homepage.  This is a convenient way to find out ahead of time which of the 18 DELL OptiPlex 755 computers and which of the 17 Apple Mac Pro computers  are in use and for how long they have been in use.

The Media and Digital Resource Laboratory (MDRL) at the Ralph Brown Draughon Library was established in the Fall of 2004 to help Auburn University students and faculty create and use multimedia materials in their class assignments, projects and scholarly research. By providing access to the latest multimedia hardware and software, together with the on-site technical expertise needed to use these resources, the MDRL has become a centerpiece of learning through technology at the Library. The MDRL staff consists of four full time employees each of whom brings a unique level and range of skills. The staff is supported by student employees from many different academic areas who work one on one with patrons to help them make their ideas a reality, and hopefully, teach them something about the technology along the way. The staff and students in the MDRL are committed to serving the multimedia technology needs of Auburn University students and faculty in all academic disciplines.
