Seirbhís Teicneolaíochta Cúnta sa Leabharlann

Tá an tSeirbhís Teicneolaíochta Cúnta lonnaithe ar urlár na talún i Leabharlann Shéamais Uí Argadáin agus níl an spás seo ar fáil ach do mhic léinn atá cláraithe leis an tSeirbhís Tacaíochta Míchumais.

Is seomra oscailte mór é le spásanna staidéir ginearálta, ríomhairí ar dheasca ar féidir a ardú agus a ísliú, dhá mheaisín CCTV, a mhéadaíonn leathanaigh as leabhair agus cáipéisí eile mar aon le fótachóipire ar leibhéal íseal.

Tá trí bhoth fhuaimdhíonacha ann, agus tá ríomhaire, scanóir agus deasc ar féidir a ardú agus a ísliú i ngach ceann de na bothanna. Is féidir le beirt na bothanna a úsáid ag an am céanna, ionas go mbeidh úsáideoirí in ann oibriú le cúntóir pearsanta más gá. Féadfaidh mic léinn na bothanna a chur in áirithe roimh ré ach a gcuid sonraí a chur isteach ar an sceideal áirithinte sa spás TC. Dhá uair an chloig do gach seisiún staidéir a cheadaítear agus tugtar tús áite do mhic léinn a bhfuil bogearraí sainiúla ag teastáil uathu.

Tabhair faoi deara go n-úsáidtear na bothanna mar ionaid scrúduithe chomh maith agus d’fhéadfadh nach mbeidís ar fáil don ghnáthúsáid le linn na seisiún scrúduithe.
