Computer lab

Renovation Update

The Map and Data Library computer lab, normally located on the fifth floor of Robarts Library, has closed until early-mid spring 2025 for renovations

MDL computers, equipped with additional GIS and statistical software, have been moved: MDL software is available on 20 of the 40 computers in the 4th floor electronic classroom. Look for computers with MDW on the desktop for advanced GIS and stats software.
