In conjunction with the expansion of the Digital Resources Lab, two additional microform reader printers are being converted from photocopying-only to digital reproduction to allow patrons to scan microform images.  This allows patrons to either send scanned images to their e-mail accounts or to save scanned images to digital storage devices.

In response to popular demand, the Digital Resources Lab, located on the First Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library is expanding.  Construction work is underway to expand the lab into the area where some of the microform collections have been housed and the microform reading equipment has been located.  (Microform collections and reading equipment have been moved; see the First Floor Service Desk for assistance).

The Digital Resource Laboratory (DRL) at RBD Library is designed to help Auburn University students, faculty, and staff use multimedia materials in their class assignments and course projects. It does this by providing access to the latest multimedia hardware and software, together with the on-site technical expertise needed to use these resources to best advantage. The DRL is committed to serving the multimedia technology needs of Auburn University students and faculty in all academic disciplines.  See the DRL link for more information about the services offered, etc.

In order to ensure that heavily-used library materials are readily available for all patrons, fines for two categories of library materials will change on January 2, 2007.  The two groups of materials affected by this adjustment are recalled items and materials with special loan periods such as bound journals. 

For these two categories, the current rate of $0.50 per day will change to $1.00 per day.  When another patron needs checked-out materials, books may be recalled seven days after they have been checked out.  Once a recall is placed, a patron has seven fine-free days to return the item.
