Three computer labs are located in Shain Library: the PC Electronic Classroom, located on the lower level, the Davis Electronic Classroom, located on the main level, and the Neff Lab, located on the second floor. When not in use for instruction, these labs are all open for use by the Connecticut College community during open library hours. There are also a number of discipline-specific computer labs located throughout the campus for specialized use.
The PC Electronic Classroom has 20 workstations, with seating for 2 people per workstation, and an instructor's station with computer projection. Each computer is a dual-boot Macintosh computer, configured as a Windows-based computer which can be rebooted to the Macintosh operating system.
The Davis Electronic Classroom has 10 windows-based workstations and an instructor's station with computer projection, and is dedicated to instructional activities that advance the information literacy of the Connecticut College community. Priority for use is given to library research instruction classes.
The Neff Lab is also dedicated to instructional activities that advanced the information literacy of the Connecticut College community. The Neff Lab is equipped with 16 Macintosh workstations plus an instructor's station with computer projection. Full semester scheduling for a curricular course will be considered only if the course requires use of the unique hardware and software available in the Neff Lab.
