The Bryan Information Commons has 12 collaborative Mediascape workstations available for use. Kimbel Library has 3 workstations available. Mediascapes enable multiple users to display their computer screens on large group monitors. The technology that enables this interactivity also allows users to seamlessly switch between feeds, taking away many of the barriers to collaborative work. Food and drink will not be permitted at Mediascape workstations in order to protect the main hub computer stored inside. Mediascapes are located in the following areas:
- First floor alcoves
- First floor open areas
- Mediascape Study Rooms (Rooms 122 and 232)
- Second Floor Classroom (Room 234)
- First floor of the library
