Using the Visualization Lab:
Before using the Visualization Lab, you will need to attend one of the monthly orientation sessions. Please review the Technology Support Desk Hours for upcoming orientation sessions. If you are in need of a training session outside of the lab’s scheduled times or require more in-depth training or consultation, please contact AtkinsTechSupport@uncc.edu.
Once you have completed the orientation, you will be added to the list of approved users able to book the Visualization Lab in the Study Room booking system. Priority is generally given to users with academic projects that require the use of specialized hardware or software housed in the lab, though the library reserves the right to cancel a reservation at any time.
At the time of your reservation, please check in with your UNC Charlotte ID at the Technology Support Desk.
Instructors wishing to reserve the Visualization Lab for course use may contact the Technology Support Desk and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
