Technology And Available Software

The Asa H. Gordon library features, 36 computers available for students on the 1st floor, 12 study rooms, and 4 conference rooms (some on 1st and 2nd floor) each with a computer.

All of the library’s computers contain the following software.

Full Microsoft Office Suite - Microsoft Office is a proprietary commercial office suite of inter-related desktop applications, contained Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Publisher.
SPSS - a computer program used for survey authoring and deployment (IBM SPSS Data Collection), data mining (IBM SPSS Modeler), text analytics, statistical analysis, and collaboration & deployment (batch & automated scoring services).
Maple Software - allows users to enter mathematics in traditional mathematical notation. Custom user interfaces can also be created. There is extensive support for numeric computations, to arbitrary precision, as well as symbolic computation and visualization. Maple incorporates a dynamically typed imperative-style programming language which resembles Pascal. The language permits variables of lexical scope. There are also interfaces to other languages (C, C#, Fortran, Java, MATLAB, and Visual Basic), and an interface with Excel.
MATLAB - MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran.

Other technologies that are available for student use include:

  • Copiers (black and white only)
  • Printers (black and white and color)
  • Faxing
