There aren’t many college students who can afford to own a flip video camera, a Texas Instruments graphing calculator and a Dell netbook computer. Yet, the Georgia State University community is increasingly using multi-media technology to creatively collaborate on learning and research. According to the 2009 ECAR survey, 53.1% of Georgia State undergraduates believe that information technology improves their learning. 47.8% of undergraduates think that information technology is available to them when they need it for their coursework.

The Georgia State University Library has added some new technology for circulation, to give students and faculty access to the tools they need. This technology is available for check out from our Access & Media Services desk on Library North 1.
