Taubman Health Sciences Library maintains a computer training facility in Room 2802 of the Medical Sciences II Building. Its purpose is to support programs taught or co-taught, or sponsored or co-sponsored, by the University Libraries. The room features 23 PC workstations for attendees plus an instructor's workstation and a ceiling-mounted data projector. The operating system in use on all computers is Windows 7. A partial list of the available software appears below.
Please note: Due to limitations on staff time it is impossible for us to install special software on our computers; they are offered on an "as-is" basis.
Windows Media Player
Please note: As of August, 2009 the computers in 2802 no longer have Photoshop.
Though the Learning Center is for the support of programs taught or co-taught, or sponsored or co-sponsored, by the University Libraries, we will try to accomodate reservations for computer-aided instruction classes taught by faculty or staff in the Medical School, School of Nursing, College of Pharmacy or UMHS. However, requests for reservations can only be made a maximum of two weeks prior to the date of the class, to ensure the greatest degree of flexibility for Library scheduling. This means that, for example, a non-Library event planned for the 15th of a given month could not be booked in the Learning Center before the 1st of that month. Also: please note that we do not install any software.
The Library Learning Center can be scheduled for use from 8:30am - 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.
To make a reservation or check the availability of the Learning Center, please email email@example.com with the date(s), time(s), audience, and instructor name. Requestors will be notified of availability within one week of the initial request. Please note the restrictions on scheduling events not taught, co-taught, sponsored or co-sponsored by the Library as outlined above under Eligibility for Use.
