The Meeting OWL 3 is a 360 degree camera, microphone, and speaker designed for hybrid meetings. It works with most video conferencing software, including Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
The Claire T. Carney Library has two Meeting OWL 3 devices for loan to UMass Dartmouth students, faculty, and staff.
Students: Stop by the library’s first floor circulation desk to borrow an OWL for up to 4 hours. You can use the OWL in conjunction with the display monitors in LIB-217 and LIB-311 to host hybrid meetings with classmates, companies, and more.
Faculty and Staff: You may reserve one of the OWLs up to two months in advance. The reservation period is for 3 days. The library is piloting the equipment reservation option with the hope that it will make the devices easier to use when hosting professional meetings. To reserve an OWL, call the circulation desk staff at 508-999-8750 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can reserve the OWL directly by going to the Primo record and clicking “Request.” (Note: You must be signed into Primo to request an item.)
