Students at Montclair State University don’t have to wait in nearly as many lines for computers in the New Jersey university’s five computer labs. An open-source tool developed by Montclair State University could help universities manage their computer labs more efficiently. The New Jersey university released its Computer Lab Availability tool as open source on Thursday, Sept. 13, so that other universities could benefit from it. On the public-facing site, the tool shows students how many computers in five labs are available, occupied or undergoing maintenance. On the back end, staff can set a computer into maintenance mode and pull usage reports.
