You can now let people know how many machines are available in Middlebury computer labs in your department, building, or campus-wide. Add the following short codes to any content in our Drupal site.
|[labserver]||Shows the total number of available lab machines on campus.|
|[labserver 65]||Shows the total number of available lab machines in lab 65, which is LIB 105.|
|[labserver 65,43,58,15,13,14]||Shows the total number of available lab machines in multiple labs. In this case I’ve listed all of the labs in the Davis Family Library.|
To get the number for a lab, you can go to the main LabStats page and click on one of the labs. The URL will content some text like “id=65″ and that is the number to use in the short code. The LabStats site also has a lot of other information about our computing labs.
Thanks to Petar Mitrevski for helping out with some configuration on the LabStats site to support this new feature.
