The Service Desk, formerly located on the First Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library by the Atrium staircase, has been moved to and combined with the Media and Digital Resource Lab which is also located on the First Floor.

Patrons needing assistance with the government document, microform, and map collections should now visit the MDRL.

The space formerly occupied by the Service Desk is being converted into group study rooms.

Auburn University Libraries announce an exciting new way for students and faculty to meet and share ideas with the availability of two media:scape locations in the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.

The media:scape system offers a "walk-up and connect" solution that allows up to six MS Windows or Apple laptops to be simultaneously connected to a monitor.  Users can then switch between computer video feeds with just the touch of a button - facilitating the sharing and comparing of individual ideas in a collaborative learning environment. 

The library has two configurations of the media: scape hardware.  In the First Floor installation (currently reserved for undergraduate use) two medium-sized monitors can be individually controlled, making it easy to compare two ideas or solutions simultaneously.  On the Third Floor there is a single large-monitor installation that allows up to six people to easily work on a single project.  The Third Floor installation is open for reservation by all students and faculty.  Reservation for the media:scape rooms are on a first-come first-served basis and the rooms may be booked for up to four-hour blocks of time through the First Floor Circulation Desk, either in person or by contacting J.P. Pendleton at 844-4094 or pendlaj@auburn.edu .

Thanks to the recent recarpeting project, the Special Collections and Archives Department, located on the Ground Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library, has a new floor arrangement.  The main desk now faces the entrance and tables available to researchers are located to one's right  just past the main desk upon entering.  Many of the Alabama-related flags formerly hung from the ceiling have been removed, allowing more convenient access to the rest of the department including the glass display cases, many of which have been installed in new locations.
