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.

Following the successful opening of the Learning Commons on the Second Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library in early 2010, an additional study area is being opened on the First Floor in the Fall 2011 semester,

The  First Floor is being renovated for this new study area.    The map cases and microform cases have been moved into the Media and Digital Resources Lab to make room for the study area.  The MDRL and the former Service Desk staff have been combined to provide more convenient assistance to patrons using the microform and map collections, etc.

With 8600 square feet now available, plans are to install 400 new power sources, 16 group study area (available for four hours at a time), diner-style booths, L-shapted desk, couches and comfortable chairs.

Working with designers and the Student Advisory Council for Auburn Libraries, and with funding from EBSCO, the new First Floor study area of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library is underway.
