McKenzie Computing Lab
The McKenzie Lab is located in Room 101 in the basement of McKenzie Hall, and is comprised of one instructional classroom and an open lab. The McKenzie Lab is managed by the UO Libraries. The Libraries also manage the EMU Computing Lab.
To reserve the McKenzie Lab classroom (Rm 101A) for more than a single one-time session, please submit this form. A single one-time session can be requested through LibCal here. Requests for non-CRN events are not approved until two weeks prior to the start of a term. For questions about the lab, contact Sara Brownmiller.
The classroom has 21 PCs including an instructor's workstation, plus a projector and screen. The McKenzie lab and classroom share two scanners, two black & white printers, and a color laser printer. More information about printing and scanning may be found here: http://library.uoregon.edu/print-scan-copy
The McKenzie open lab contains 19 PCs and 3 Macs.
Students must log in using their DuckID's in order to use the lab computers.
See below for our software policies and a list of software available in this lab.
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 a list of software currently installed in the McKenzie Lab.
Instructors are strongly encouraged to make arrangements to test software at least a day prior to the class, to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Instructors may use their own laptop with the overhead projector, but should test their setup ahead of time as we can't stock every possible video adapter for every type of laptop.
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.
Requests to install software must be received at least ten (10) business days prior to the date of instruction, and the installation disc or discs, with verification of licensing, delivered to Peter Verrey or Pat Best in Library Systems, Knight Library, no later than ten (10) business days prior to the class. At least four weeks' notice is requested for fall term software requests.
The Libraries assess an hourly charge to install software that is requested with less than ten (10) business 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 and 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.
As of July 1, 2015, the charge for software installations will be $50 per hour or part of an hour, with a three-hour minimum. Most software installations require 3-5 hours of staff time. Requests for special software installations received with less than ten (10) business days' notice will need to include a campus index before work can begin . 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.
