SILS Lab Books

The Documentation Shelves contain numerous manuals for the software installed on the Lab computers, as well as books on the latest programming and scripting languages, networking, and database development. Please keep in mind that these reference materials may only be used by people in the SILS community and many not be removed from the SILS Lab. To borrow one of these volumes, take the book from the shelf and give your UNC OneCard to the Lab Assistant on duty.
