Semaphore Demo Room (Room 417)
This large many-windowed space with wired tables forms part of the Semaphore Research Cluster, led by Professor Matt Ratto. When the room is not in use for classes or events, iSchool students may use their fobs to gain access to this room for group or individual study.

The 4th floor also houses the Inforum branch of the Toronto Seed Library.
