The classroom has 21 PCs including an instructor's workstation, plus a projector and screen.  The McKenzie lab and classroom share a scanner, two black & white printers, and a color laser printer. More information about printing and scanning may be found here:

The McKenzie open lab contains 19 PCs and 1 Mac.

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 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.

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 two (2) weeks 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 two (2) weeks’ notice.   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 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 on July 1, 2015. Requests for special software installations received with less than two weeks’ 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 labs operated by the Libraries.
