Oakland University opens new tech center in Kresge Library

Learning in the 21st Century is getting a boost at Oakland University, thanks to its new Technology Learning Center.

The center is in the university's Kresge Library. It opened earlier this year but will have its grand opening on Tuesday. The new tech center features an information commons, along with e-learning and instructional support.

"We are trying to create synergies between different areas of information technology that help learning and research," says Frank Lepkowski, associate dean of the Kresge Library at Oakland University.

The Rochester-based facility offers computer workstations, laptops, software, peripherals and media computers with large-screen LCD monitors. Students will also have access to the library's wireless network, digital library resources, staff, Web 2.0 and other technologies at their disposal.

"It's very flexible space," Lepkowski says. "If you want to work at a computer with some extra space, you can do that. If you want to convene a study group, you can do that."
