New Monitors in Queen Lane Study Rooms
Five new LCD monitors were added to the Queen Lane library group study rooms through the 2013 Memmy Award money. The screens provide a collaborative space for students to work on projects or view presentations. Soon, Google Chromecast and Apple TV devices will be available for checkout at the service desk. These devices will facilitate the connection between the monitors and a wide variety of devices such as laptops, tablets or smartphones.
The Memmys is a student-produced video content hosted by the University of South Carolina’s School of Medicine. Drexel College of Medicine students won the 2013 award with their video, “Doc.” The first place finish came with a gift of $2,500 to the university library.
The University of South Carolina School of Medicine created the Memmys Video Contest as a way for medical students to express their creativity and showcase their talents beyond academic accomplishments.
