Wireless access points
Wireless network access points have been installed and activated in the following locations in Parks Library:
Lower Level: Media Center; User Education Classroom (Room 31); study carrels east of the stacks; and study spaces along the north and west walls of the building
Floor 1: Classroom 134; Reference Collection Area; Fireplace Room (191); Seminar Room (192); atrium and lobby area; study area near the PZ collection
Floor 2: Periodical Room; Map Room; ISU Presidents Portrait area; study area on the "bridge" along the south windows; study carrels east of the stacks; and study spaces along the north and west walls of the building
Floor 3: Large study area in the "new addition" (south/southwest end); group study rooms; study carrels east of the stacks; and study spaces along the north and west walls of the building
Floor 4: Study area in the "new addition" (south end)
Tiers 1-7: Study area along the entire east wall on all seven tiers
Given the nature of wireless signals, they may actually penetrate to other parts of the Parks Library, but should be strongest in the above locations.
Wireless access is also available in the Design Reading Room, the Veterinary Medical Library, and the Library Storage Building.
For other campus locations that currently support wireless networking, check the Central Campus Map.
In Parks Library, students wishing to plug laptops into electrical outlets are encouraged to use study carrels along the west wall on Lower Level and on Floors 2, 3, and 4. In these locations, each carrel is equipped with its own electrical outlet. On Tiers 1-7, approximately half of the study carrels along the east wall also have electrical outlets built into the lamp that is under the carrel shelf.
