Woolley Electronic Classroom

The Mabel Tingley Woolley Class of 1925 Electronic Classroom was made possible through a gift from Mabel Tingley Woolley W1925 augmented by a trust established by Virgilyn Noyes Beitel W1933.

The primary purpose of the Woolley Electronic Classroom is to support the instruction program of the Research and Instruction Department, Library and Information Services (LIS). In addition, the classroom serves as a public computing lab when no classes are scheduled. Additional, more occasional uses are listed below.
