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.
