|The CSI Lab was implemented for collaborative student|
study and project development in early fall 2014.
Standard Four of the Information Literacy Competency Standards of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) asserts that, "the information literate student, individually or as a member of a group, uses information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose."
Among the indicators that a student has achieved competency in this area are their ability to apply "new and prior information to the planning and creation of a particular product or performance... and [to communicate] the product or performance effectively to others."
|The only room with walls that go to the ceiling,|
the CSI lab provides a much needed group
study space for students in the library.
We intend for the CSI Lab to provide a place for students to explore the use of communication media and information technologies that are not otherwise available to them. Groups of two or more HIU students may check out a key to the Lab for up to four hours at a time. A variety of cables and adapters are available as well to enable them to connect, collaborate, plan, and create.
The event will start at 10:30 AM immediately after chapel on Fall Preview Day. The library is closed from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM for chapel. The event will begin immediately upon reopening.
Please take a few minutes to see the Lab help us show our appreciation to the volunteers of the Treasures N Beyond board for their generosity in funding the project as well as the Information Systems, Conference Services, and Operations Departments for their expertise, installation, configuration, and set up that made it all possible!

demonstrating the need for a sound-proof room.
