The Ames Library has more than enough computers for students that need them. Software is upgraded on a regular basis to stay compatible with students' needs. IWU subscribes to a number of online academic search engines and directories, so the most relevant research materials are right at your fingertips. An online catalog makes it easy to locate books at any one of several libraries in the area. The Buck Memorial Library houses a Mac lab that is state-of-the-art. The computers are top-of-the-line, and the classrooms are equipped with video projectors for presentations and films. Computers elsewhere on campus are nearly identical to those found in the labs. The only exception are a few computers in the Hansen Student Center that might as well still run on DOS.
Though there is an abundance of computers, it can be difficult to locate an empty one at times. Certain labs are dedicated to classes, during which students are unable to access two of the larger labs, including the Mac lab. Ames Library has computers on every floor, so it may take some looking, but there will always be an open one somewhere. The only drawback to the network at Ames is the lack of color-printing abilities. There is only one printer on campus that prints color, and it can be notoriously difficult to locate. (It's on the first floor of Ames.) It definitely helps to have your own, but with as many computers as there are, it isn't necessary.
