Using the Lab

The DSL is available for use by the entire Florida Tech campus community.

Reservations for research sessions, classes, meetings, workshops, and video wall presentations can be coordinated with DSL Support Manager Martin Gallagher at gallagherm@fit.edu or 321.674.8638.

You may drop in any time while the library is open. Student assistants will conduct tours and provide technical assistance after 5:00 pm.

Videoconferencing System

 Use of the videoconferencing system requires a reservation as the equipment is located in the DSL classroom.

 The Lab Manager or student assistant will explain how the equipment works and the user will operate it using their own university log in.

Video Wall

The 4’x10’ LED Panel Video Wall is available by reservation for classes as well as individual use. Contact the Lab Manager to coordinate. Walk-ins are possible if no reservations have been made.

Geographic Information Systems

 No reservation is required. Patrons can log in using their FIT Tracks ID and password.
