Shuster Lab for Digital Scholarship

students using the Shuster Lab for Digital Scholarship

Located next to the Multimedia Lab on the first floor, the Shuster Lab is ideal for small workshops or training sessions. This room includes two Solstice-enabled wall-mounted monitors, mobile worktables, and whiteboards. The Shuster Lab can be reserved by WPI faculty and staff and student groups. Student groups must be accompanied by an advisor or faculty member. Library-led group consultations and workshops receive priority in this space. The room is kept unlocked and is available for use when not reserved on a first-come-first-served basis. Room reservations are mediated by Gordon Library staff who will inform you if your request is approved. 

The flatbed and sheet-fed scanners previously in this space are available for staff, student, and visitor use in a new Digitization Lab in the Archives and Special Collections department (Located in Room 024 on the Ground Floor).  For more information, please contact the Archives team

The Shuster Lab was made possible through the generosity of Helen Shuster, one of WPI’s most distinguished library directors.
