Where can I check out an adapter for my Mac to connect to the TV in the group study room?
In many group study rooms in the library, there is a connection for a VGA cable in the floorbox. You will need to check out a VGA cable at Tech on 2. Mac users will also need to check out an adapter for that VGA cable to connect the cable to their Mac. Please note: Standard Group Study Rooms #303-306, 310-313, and Media Listening Rooms do not have TV screens.
In Easy Display Rooms, there is an outlet in the wall with the option to use either VGA or HDMI cables. These cables (and adapters for Macs) are available for checkout at the Level 2 desk.
Adapters, Ethernet cables, VGA or HDMI cables, and headphones may be checked out at the Level 2 desk, Tech on 2. These are for use ONLY in the library.
Guide to adapter types:
A: DVI to VGA (older Macbook Pros – silver)
B: Micro-DVI to VGA (Macbook Air)
C: Mini Display Port to VGA (current Macbook and Macbook Pro models - aluminum)

F: Mini Display Port to HDMI (current Macbook and Macbook Pro models - aluminum)
Adapter F connects to the HDMI cable, which is available for checkout for Easy Display rooms.
