Collaboratory at the Library

What is the Collaboratory?

The Collaboratory at the Library is an active learning space that can be reserved by faculty from both Loyola University Maryland and Notre Dame of Maryland University. The space is designed to highlight active learning, allowing students and faculty to utilize multiple types of devices to share information and collaborate. Faculty and students can share content from their devices to multiple devices in the room, including a wall mounted 65” TV. Moveable furniture and individual whiteboards allow for small group and class sharing allowing for flexibility in brainstorming and group problem solving.
