Upgrades to the computers in the Lab and Reference area

We will be upgrading the set of tools students, faculty, and staff have available in the Library. Specifically, we are going to upgrade our computers to Office 2013. This will bring the Library up-to-date with the other computer labs on campus. While the upgrade is underway, the Lab and the computers at Reference on the 2nd floor will still be available for use. However, during this process individual computers will be unavailable until the upgrade is complete, so please plan accordingly. Thanks for your patience!Upgrade_info
