What is the multitouch table?

Our 55″ multitouch table is a large interactive display that enables multiple people to  explore and interact with content simultaneously. A few examples of what you can do include exploring curated exhibits of special collections materials from the Boston College Libraries or interacting with fossils and artifacts in a virtual lab. Visit the touch table in the Digital Studio to view some of the curated exhibits, software applications, websites, and other content.
