The English Lab is a quiet computer lab where all students, not only those enrolled in English classes, can do research and complete assignments. We are here to help you, so If you are unfamiliar with computers or feel uncomfortable using them, please come by: our friendly and patient staff will be more than happy to be of assistance.
When you arrive at the door, you will be asked to show your Glendale College ID or other picture ID so that we may check you in at the front desk since only students currently enrolled at GCC may use the English Lab.
The Lab is equipped with both Macs and PCs that have a standard installation of the following software:
- Microsoft Word will allow you to type your papers and edit them with an online spell-checker, grammar checker, as well as a dictionary and thesaurus.
- Excel, an industry standard spread sheet program, will help you produce professional-looking charts and diagrams.
- PowerPoint will help you create presentations. Professors frequently use PowerPoint for their class lectures.
- Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox will allow you to access to online resources such as Blackboard. The Lab is part of the campus network, so you may access material from our GCC Library such as the Los Angeles Times, LexisNexis Academic, countless online newspapers, journals, and magazines . These materials should aid you with your assignments and provide you with the most up-to-date information for your research.
- Inspiration will help you outline and diagram your research papers.
- Each room is equipped with a high speed-heavy capacity printer that you may use. There is a charge of 10 cents per printed page.
