Technology Resource Center

The Brown Technology Resource Center (TRC) provides software support and training for faculty, staff, and students.

Do you need assistance using software and incorporating technology into your academic assignments? Do you want to print a poster? Are you looking for color or black and white laser-jet print outs? Then please let us help you at the TRC! All of our hours are on a walk-in basis and our services are free to the College community. We only charge minimal fees for consumables like paper and DVDs.

The TRC staff is composed of highly-trained student technicians. While the technicians share a common knowledge base, each employee has his or her own area of expertise. If you need computing assistance, please come to room 233, call us at (847) 735-5168 or email us at browntrc@mx.lakeforest.edu. We will come to any computer in the Library to help you! The computers in Room 233 (TRC) are reserved for TRC employees only.

For printing posters or other print jobs, email your finished file to browntrc@mx.lakeforest.edu or bring your finished file to the TRC on a flash drive. You can also use the printers in the classrooms and the 24-Hour Lab in the Library.

The TRC lends Microsoft Surface Tablets as a convenience for students to use anywhere within the Library. We also loan basic camcorders and digital cameras. All of our loaners are on a first-come, first-served basis. We require that you present your Student ID upon borrowing an item from the TRC. We cannot solely accept an ID number without your physical photo college ID. If you fail to return the equipment, we will charge your College account for the full amount to replace the item.
