These spaces include facilities for multimedia production, scanning, OCR, video- and tele-conferencing, and presentations. To reserve a timeslot in one of these rooms, contact the department main office (Smith 318,, x35790) or the department IT office (Smith 206A,, x69169). These spaces were funded, in part, by the support of the UW Student Technology Fund.
