You asked: Are there private rooms for tutoring?
Yes! The study rooms on floors 2, 5 and 6 are ideal for tutoring. They have a table and chairs, room for up to 3 people, power and wireless is available. Any UNCG student may reserve them on the scheduler on the Libraries' home page.

Libraries' response: Clickers need to be registered with an individual to be used for a long period of time so it's not something we can really provide for multiple users.
The UNCG Bookstore has new and used clickers for purchase.

We're delighted how much students love the DMC! The reason we aren't able to keep it open 24 hours is primarily funding. If we kept the DMC opened we'd have to staff it. Also, we'd need to keep the College Avenue entrance open due to fire regulations and staff that, too. Unfortunately, we don't have the resources at this time to cover this additional staffing.

Irma says: We'd love to hear your suggestions! Please put them in the suggestion box across from the Check Out Desk on the first floor or enter them in the online suggestion box.
Follow this blog to keep up with new DVD titles.
As you can imagine our DVD collection is very popular so the reason we limit to 2 DVDs per checkout is to make the collection as accessible as possible to as many people at a time.

Irma says: The new space is for the Digital ACT (Action, Consultation & Training) Studio. They've been there for 3 years with service at the DMC Desk but now have their own improved space.
Here's what they can help you with:
Our goal at the Digital ACT (Action, Consultation, and Training) Studio is to help people become better designers and learn how to use technology more meaningfully. We support students, faculty, and staff in the creation of stronger, rhetorically and aesthetically effective digital projects.
The Digital Studio practices a collaborative approach to sessions, where designers and consultants engage in conversations about projects – conversations that focus on shared knowledge and expertise. Designers meet with a consultant at any stage of the composing process from brainstorming and story boarding to revising and adding the final touches to an assignment. Collaborative consultations and workshops help designers think and learn about:
- Rhetorical moves (audience, context, purpose, etc.)
- Best practices for visual design
- The designing process
- Aesthetic elements §
- Goals and plans for revisions
- Design products
