FTDC Resources


The FTDC lab, located in Weir 101, is open to all UM faculty, staff, and TAs and houses both high-end windows and mac computers. We also have flatbed scanners that work on both platforms. Several of our scanners have document feeders that allow for fast scanning of multipage documents. We also have 35mm slide/negative scanners that are available for use. In addition to scanners, we have multiple video digitization stations that allow for the digitizing and editing of video for use in PowerPoint presentations, websites, and DVDs. Our macs and pcs all have DVD burners in them, and we also have a CD/DVD duplicator that will burn multiple discs at once. We also have both B/W and Color laser printers.
