The Kilmer Library Lab has been a staple among the OIT Computer Labs on the Livingston Campus. The lab has always seen high-traffic from patrons, given it’s location within the Kilmer Library, and the library’s proximity to the Livingston Student Center, the Rutgers Business School and many other academic buildings on that side of the Livingston Campus.
The increased use of the Kilmer Library in general, and specifically the computer lab, prompted the staff at the Rutgers Libraries and the Office of Information Technology to come together to address growing demand for comfortable computing space in the Kilmer Library. This long-established facility was relocated, expanded and improved during Spring Break 2012. It now has six times the space as before.
The new and improved Kilmer Library Lab contains
- 37 Windows computers
- 8 iMac computers
- 45 total OIT computers
available for students, faculty and staff to use. This is nearly double the number of OIT computers that were previously available in the Kilmer Library Lab. There are also 15 laptop stations spread out among the computer stations. All stations are equipped with extra electrical outlets on each desktop.
