Advanced Learning Labs

Use of the Advanced Learning Labs for library research and/or academic instruction

The Advanced Learning Labs are reserved for use by the Libraries, EITS and CTL to provide research, instruction/tutoring, computing, and faculty development sessions for students and faculty. Examples of these uses may include:

  • Library research instruction and tutoring sessions (both class specific and general);
  • UNIV and library-partnered courses;
  • Single session academic/ course-related class use (e.g., research methods, testing, multi software use/projects);
  • Single session or semester long academic tutoring (usually scheduled for evenings)

Labs are not typically reserved during finals and one week prior so that these computers can be used for finals preparation and study. Exceptions include research instruction and finals related academic requests.

Requests for use of an Advanced Learning Lab for library research and/or academic instruction sessions may be made using our online reservation form or by contacting Caroline Barratt at or (706) 542-6196.

Use of the Advanced Learning Labs for outside departments or for non-academic sessions

The Advanced Learning Labs are typically not available for outside departmental use due to the volume of research and academic instruction sessions.

Outside departmental use (such as departmental training, staff education programs, conference related workshops, etc.) may be accommodated on a case-by-case basis, but requests can not be considered more than one month in advance. Long-term or all day use of the labs is especially difficult to accommodate.

Requests for use of an Advanced Learning Lab for outside departmental requests may be made by using our online reservation form or by contacting Kyleigh Weaver (, 706/542-7000).

Equipment in the Advanced Learning Labs

The labs consist of between 16 – 24 computers. Software available on each computer includes MS Office suite, Adobe Creative Suite (Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks, Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign) and printing capability. Full list of software.

Each lab is equipped with an instructor's podium which includes a desktop computer, opaque projector, DVD, VCR and CD-Rom players, as well as a connection to a projector, cable television and the internet. A wireless control panel allows the instructor to control the lights, projector, projection screens, and window shades. Additional connections are available for a laptop, which must be brought to the room.

Requests for special software

Requests for special software applications must get prior approval from EITS by contacting Tommy Jones, IT Senior Manager (, 706/542-6292) at least two weeks in advance. No additional software may be added to the workstations without the prior consent of EITS. Any group adding or attempting to add additional software without approval will be permanently barred from the use of these classrooms.

Student groups or registered student organizations will not be approved to add special software.
