Do you need a computer lab for your students to research and work on assignments? NWACC Library lets current faculty and staff reserve our computer lab for independent classroom instruction. The Library's computer lab features 24 student computers, an instructor computer, a digital projector, a SMART Board, and Internet access. Reservations for the lab are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis. Faculty members are allowed up to three pending lab reservations per course section at a time, while staff members and departments are permitted a total of three open reservations at a time. This policy is designed to ensure fair and equal access to the lab throughout each semester.
