How do I check out course materials?
You can check out course materials (e.g., textbooks, videos, slides) using your student ID, free of charge, at the front desk of either MSLC location. Course materials must remain in the MSLC (they cannot be moved out, or to other floors, of the building).
Do I need an appointment to use space at the MSLC?
Can I try the MSLC physics demos even if I'm not taking a physics course?
The physics demos are provided to any and all inquiring students, regardless of whether or not they are enrolled in a physics course. K-12 school children often visit the MSLC to tour the demos. Please be aware of these groups and refrain from interfering in their field trip. Please respect the equipment and follow any directions (written or verbally provided by MSLC staff) to ensure these resources remain available to the Rutgers community.
