About Technology in the Library


Technology Tools
The Library provides access to a number of tools students may need for their digital scholarship whether it is a self-directed project, a personal need, or an assignment from a professor. The Library provides access to new technology tools based on the needs of students and faculty. Many items are available for check out while some are only available for use within the library. Please contact the Library Circulation Desk to learn more about the specific details of each tool and their availability. Our goal is to provide access to important and unique tools students need and don’t have access to themselves. 
Faculty: If you want to learn how these tools may be helpful to your students please contact Johanna Staman (johanna@spu.edu). The list below summarizes many of the items we provide access to:

  • Video cameras (prosumer quality and basic pocket cameras)
  • Picture cameras (DSLR and basic point-and-shoots)
  • Tripods
  • Chromebooks
  • A few MacBook Airs with OS X (for use within the library only), MacBook power adapters (for use within the library only)
    • Equipped with software such as Adobe, Office, iMovie, and more.
  • Desktop computers with large screens (some with dual screens) Audio/Video adapters (e.g., to connect a MacBook Pro to a TV screen)
    • Equipped with software such as Adobe Creative Suite, Office, AutoCAD, and more.
  • Large screens in library study rooms with HDMI and VGA cables
  • Mobile device power adapters (Apple’s Lightning and 30-pin, Micro USB, Mini USB, USB-C)
  • Headphones

Technology Assistance Library assistants are equipped to handle certain questions about technology use. For more specific assistance please contact CIS at 206-281-2982 or email them at help@spu.edu.
