Installing a wireless network recognized the prevalence of laptops and reduced the need for stand alone stations required in the Library. Built before computers were central to libraries, the Library integrated automation and computers as available. Acquisitions began automated ordering in 1986. The online catalog named GRACE (GTU Reference Access Catalog Experience) replaced card catalogs in 1992. Circulation functions went online in 1993. Stand-alone desktop computers were available to use for research and writing. A sound proof, glassed in teaching lab with computer stations and projector opened in 2001, funded by a Lilly grant. The lab was completely updated with moveable furniture and a large smart screen in 2017.
