Central University Libraries will host the grand opening of the Norwick Center for Digital Services Thursday, Jan. 24. There will be an open house from 1-5 p.m., and all members of the SMU community are welcome to tour the facilities.

The Center for Digital Services features the new Student Multimedia Center, a 40-seat screening room, and library digital projects space. The Student Multimedia Center features 12 individual creation stations with 24-inch iMacs, two group projects rooms with professional Power Mac editing stations and dual 23-inch monitors, and two group practice rooms with 20-inch iMac computers, video projectors and installed cameras so that students may practice and record classroom presentations.

The open house will feature tours and demonstrations, refreshments, gifts, a drawing for an iPod Nano, and a free gift to the first 75 students.

The new Norwick Center for Digital Services is located in the Fondren Library Information Commons Area. For more information, please contact Robert Walker or Tyeson Seale.
