The Graduate Research Lab will be closing all resources beginning Monday May the 7th for Maintenance and upgrades

Graduate Community,
Please note that the Graduate Research Lab will be closing all resources beginning Monday May the 7th for Maintenance and upgrades.
During this closure there will be a number of tasks taking place including:

New Printer in Print Lab

The Grad Lab has a new printer! The Lab now has an Epson P20000. This printer is capable of printing on roll paper that is up to 64” wide. There do not seem to be a large number of papers available at the full 64” width yet but the Lab has purchased 60” Silver Rag and 64” Epson Enhanced Matte. Printing on this printer will require a printing reservation to be made in advance via the Contact Page on this website.

Drobo Links

The Grad Lab Drobo and Mavericks seem to be having a bit of trouble communicating. As a result there are 2 links that appear when you connect to the Drobo. Please note that you should be using "GradLabDrobo" Link and not the link with your user name. To find your user folder you must follow both the "GradLabDrobo" and "students" links then locate your folder in the list of user names. Please see the Screen shots below to elaborate.


Do not try to use this folder it will not work!
