Klamath Computing Lab

Klamath Computing Lab

The Klamath Lab is located in the basement of Klamath Hall, and is comprised of three instructional classrooms and an open lab. The Klamath Lab is managed by the UO Libraries through spring term 2015. After that, management of the B26 classroom will be transferred to the Computer & Information Science Department, and all other rooms in the lab will close permanently.  See details in the Rooms in Klamath Lab section below.

To reserve a room in the Klamath Lab, submit this form.  For questions about the lab, contact Lisa Sieracki.

Each of the classrooms has a projector and screen.  All Klamath Lab rooms share a scanner and a black & white printer.  More information about printing and scanning may be found here:  http://library.uoregon.edu/print-scan-copy

See below for our software policies and a list of software available in this lab. For questions or requests regarding PC software, contact Peter Verrey. For  questions or requests regarding Mac software, contact Scott Austed.

Rooms in Klamath Lab

B13 is the open lab, with 12 PCs and 22 Macs, some of which are dual boot.  This room is generally not available to reserve during the term. It is used by the Computer and Information Science department for tutoring and office hours. The first two days of each term, the room may be used by the American English Institute for student placement testing.
This lab will go offline after spring term 2015 as part of the Science Library renovation.

B13A is an instructional classroom with 20 dual-boot Macs (can operate as Mac or PC), plus an instructor station. 
This classroom will go offline after spring term 2015 as part of the Science Library renovation.

B13B is an instructional classroom with only one computer, an instructor's workstation. There is a projector and screen in the room. There is space for 20 students, or 10 laptops.
This classroom will go offline after spring term 2015 as part of the Science Library renovation.

B26 is an instructional classroom used primarily by the Computer and Information Science (CIS) department. It has 24 dual-boot Macs (can operate as Mac or PC), plus an instructor station.
Following spring term 2015, management and support of B26 will be transferred to the CIS Department and the College of Arts and Sciences. It is not yet known whether B26 will be available to reserve during summer 2015, due to construction activities.  Reservation requests for classes or other events to take place after spring term 2015 should be directed to Jan Saunders at jan@cs.uoregon.edu

After-Hours Reservations

The UO Libraries charge a $10 hourly fee per lab for lab use outside of normal operating hours. This policy applies to all labs operated by the Libraries.

When the Libraries receive a request for an event to be held outside normal hours, the requestor will be asked to agree to the fee and must provide a university index from which the Libraries can JV the funds. An event will not be confirmed until the index is received. Funds will be JV’ed after the event is complete.

The after-hours charge will be $10 per hour, or part of an hour, for the scheduled event.  Additionally, if the lab needs to be opened for an event, a student will be scheduled to start work one half hour before the start of the event, thus incurring an additional $10 charge.  If the event ends after the normal operating hours, a student will be scheduled to work one half hour past the scheduled time, incurring a $10 charge.  However, If the event both begins and ends outside normal operating hours, only one $10 fee will be charged.

The charge will be increased as needed to cover costs.

Approval of events that are requested outside of normal lab hours will also depend on the Libraries’ ability to schedule a student to work during the requested time.


Please see below for the current list of software installed in the Klamath Lab.

Instructors are strongly encouraged to make arrangements to test software at least a day prior to the class, to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

We regret that we are unable to purchase additional software; however, a department may supply software to be installed in the classroom temporarily, along with verification of licensing. Software installed in this manner will be removed at the end of the academic term.

We do not provide administrator-level access to our lab computers, so please contact us if you wish to install software.

Requests to install software must be received at least ten (10) business prior to the date of instruction, and the installation disc or discs, with verification of licensing, delivered to Peter Verrey or Scott Austed in Library Systems, Knight Library, no later than ten (10) business days prior to the class. At least four weeks' notice is suggested for fall term software requests.

Beginning January 2015, the Libraries will assess an hourly charge to install software that is requested with less than ten (10) days' notice.   This includes newer versions of existing software. These types of special requests require significant staff time to determine if the software will run on our workstations, is compatible with other software running on the workstations, develop an installation procedure, coordinate the software installation with other events scheduled in the labs or classrooms, and actually install the software. The charge will be $30.00/hour or part of an hour, with most installations requiring 3-5 hours of staff time.   This cost, $30.00/hour, does not accurately reflect the costs to the Libraries and will rise to $50, with a three-hour minimum, on July 1, 2015. Requests for special software installations received with less than ten (10) business days' notice will need to include a campus index for the installation charge before work can begin on the installation.  There may be a charge even if Libraries staff are not able to install the software. 

This policy applies to all computer labs/classrooms operated by the Libraries.
