Collaboration Stations

The Collaboration Stations in Milner Library let you display your laptop or mobile device screen on a large monitor. They are ideal for group work because everyone in your group can plug in their laptops, and you can take turns displaying your device screens on the monitor.

Each Collaboration Station consists of a large monitor and several cords that allow you and your group to display your laptop or mobile device screens on the large monitor.

Use the cords with VGA or HDMI connectors to connect your device. Adapters for Apple users are available at the circulation desk on Floor 2.

Press the red button to display your screen.
