Learning Spaces & Technology

A variety of study spaces are available on the first and second floors. Try out the individuals carrels, a table for six or a large, leather chair.  Changing spaces: transforming Dunn Library into Simpson’s academic hub describes how our spaces have evolved.

Tech spaces:

  • Four group studies on the first floor have white boards, tables, and access to wired/wireless Internet. 
  • Viewing & Quiet Study (Dunn 100) has a TV/DVD cart (check out HDMI cable from front counter) for viewing reserve items & a large flat screen to work on group presentations or view streaming video. Camcorders and tripods can be checked out to record and review class presentations.
  • TechStudy (Dunn 101) includes document camera, multimedia projector and other media equipment from check-out.
  • Dunn 104 is named in honor of Joe Walt, former Simpson professor and college historian.
  • To improve hands-on learning space for education students, two methods classrooms have been moved from Wallace Hall to Dunn Library. The education workroom is being updated to the Teacher Education Curriculum Lab; it is connected to Dunn 201, the first of the two Teacher Education Labs. The rooms will be available for group study outside of class times.
