  • Wide-Format Printing Service: Posters and Banners (Drop-off): AIT has the capacity to print wide-format posters and banners (up to 42 inches wide). Supported file formats include: high-resolution PDF, GIF, and JPG with embedded fonts and graphics. You may submit your project on CD or USB flash drive, along with a letter-sized proof. Your poster print jobs will be processed between 2 - 4 business days.

Laptop Loans

Faculty can check out PC and Mac laptops for short- and long-term periods. For complete information, including the Laptop Loan Request form, click here: http://ait.brooklyn.cuny.edu/index.php?view=loans

Multimedia Classrooms

Faculty may reserve a "Windows Classroom" or a "Mac OS X Classroom" to teach in a hands-on multimedia computer facility.

These specialized classrooms may be reserved for occasional, specific class meetings requiring the use of technology. High demand disallows scheduling these rooms for every class meeting during a semester. Technical Support Staff are available for limited classroom support.

Check availability and room size, and reserve a Multimedia Classroom.

Tech Workshops

Check the library's events calendar for upcoming workshops on Blackboard, SPSS, QuickBooks, Microsoft Office products, and Adobe products, among other topics.
