The three pillars of University Library, information literacy education and computing support services, and foreign language education support are integrated under the umbrella of the Academic Information and Media Center, which provides the academic information services essential for university education and research.
We have a range of facilities to support language learning, both in class and for self-access study. These include general-purpose computer labs to support network-based language learning, as well as purpose-built CALL labs with a range of courseware and other language-learning systems.
Our Language Learning Commons* forms the centerpiece of our support for self-access language learning. We provide a large range of software and multimedia materials for language learning in the languages taught at the University (English, French, German, Mandarin Chinese, Korean, and Japanese as a Foreign Language), as well as in other major languages such as Spanish and Italian. Students can use the individual and group study spaces provided, and ask for advice from the resident Language Learning Advisors.
Our Recording Studio is available to students for creation of videos or podcasts and multimedia assignments.
*from April, 2012
To better meet the demands of today's information-intensive society, the University emphasizes information literacy and provides training to all students in both practical computing skills and the ethical and security dimensions of computing and our networked society.
Our five computing labs are available both for classes and to students for self -directed study. Our wired and wireless networks connect our students to the wider world of information.
Students can check important notices and get other campus information from widescreen plasma displays placed strategically around the campus.
