Mediascape Collaborative Workstations
The NYIT Art & Architecture, Manhattan and Wisser libraries now have Mediascape collaborative workstations located in select study areas.  The Mediascape collaborative workstations allow multiple laptops, tablets, and smart phone devices to be simultaneously connected to larger screen monitors. If you're sharing documents, images, video, or websites, anyone in the group can send their screen easily to the group monitor at the push of a button.  Visit Manhattan Library's online booking page to reserve a room.
