The DAC combines physical and virtual resources in an attractive
and comfortable environment where students, faculty, and staff
can meet and interact, working collaboratively or alone. It
merges academic and technical resources and offers the support
of expert faculty and staff from Dimond Library and Computing
and Information Services (CIS). The DAC provides services from
the Loan, Reference, and Government Information library departments
and the new IT Support Center from CIS.
