The Tech Suite (study room 317) is the perfect place to practice presentations with its large flat-screen monitor (including wires to attach your laptop!). But if study room 317 isn’t available, don’t worry! We now have a portable projector for borrowing that can be used anywhere in the library, just ask at the front Circulation desk!
