The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences is located in the newly constructed Moore Hall, which opened during the summer, 1999. The building consists of nearly 100,000 square feet, most of which is devoted to research and teaching of psychological and brain sciences. Extensive laboratories are available, including a dedicated fMRI, small animal laboratories, awake, behaving primate laboratories, computer labs, neurophysiological and psychophysical recording facilities, video production and editing, social and group interaction.
The resources of the College library system, an extensive and well-balanced collection of over 1,750,000 volumes, are made easily accessible to all members of the Dartmouth community through the library's open stack policy and on-line catalog. Baker Memorial Library, the nucleus of the system, houses the main collection, as well as an outstanding reference collection, microtext, a government documents section, a large periodical collection, and many special collections. Collections in art, biomedical sciences, business and engineering, English, mathematics, and physical sciences are housed in branch libraries. All libraries provide computerized literature searching services and, in addition, participate in automated borrowing programs in cooperation with other research libraries.
Dartmouth offers a wide array of computer facilities that are distinguished by the ease with which they can be accessed. Students and faculty members can access computer network services from personal computers, workstations or terminals almost anywhere on campus. Computer network services include: a variety of mainframe computers; electronic mail with access to the Internet; the library's on-line card catalog, encyclopedia and other texts; and access to file servers.
The Macintosh has been the prominent personal computer on campus, but many users are now using Windows systems. Because of the relative consistency of the personal computing environment on campus, support and consulting services for Macintosh systems and network services are excellent. In addition, IBM, Sun, and other workstations are supported by specialized research and instructional networks accessible throughout campus.
