Two computers in Lab 2 are specifically designed to handle graphics intensive tasks, like image manipulation and scanning. Each computer is connected to a flatbed scanner with document feeder, which allows users to scan hard copy documents and/or photos and convert them to PDF. These computers are self-service and first-come first-serve.

Labs may be reserved for purposes other than official University of Maryland classes, based on availability.  Fees may be charged based on the nature of lab usage.
