Home > Library Information > Classroom/Computer Lab


The AUM Library classroom/computer lab is located on the 2nd Floor and has a dual function:

  • It is designed as a library classroom equipped for hands-on access to current technology, and moreover, it is specifically adapted to library user instruction for AUM students.
  • It is also designed as a computer lab intended to furnish personal computers for research use by AUM students.

Anyone wishing to access the facilities must sign-in with the lab assistant and present a current AUM ID.
