Narrative

The LY 177 study room will offer a unique video conferencing and a smarter collaborative experience for students. The LY 177 study room will feature the Newline TRUTOUCH X7 interactive display, which incorporates an OPS (Open Pluggable Specification) PC  with Intel Core i5 that  allows students to use any collaboration software ( Skype, Google Hangout, GoToMeeting, WebEx, etc.) of their choice and collaborate with anyone, anywhere.  Students will experience collaborative study on a display that allows the whole team to interact without limitations by taking notes on the digital whiteboard and sharing annotation from the meeting in real time.  The TRUTOUCH X7 features two wide angle cameras and four microphone arrays that allow anyone to connect and be seen as though they are in collaborative study room.  The LY 177 study room will undoubtedly have a positive impact student learning and the library is ready to take a leading role in setting up the next generation of collaborative study rooms across campuses.
