Demand for collaborative work space by groups of students and faculty has increased, and in order to provide for these requests, the large group study room adjacent to the circulation desk is now dedicated to use by groups only.
If your study group (4 or more) wants a place to work on a project and you need to use computers, we will take your reservation for the large group study room adjacent to the check-out desk. Just sign up for a day and time period on the schedule and the room will be available for your group to use during the time you need it.
The room is equiped with two multi-media PCs that students can use together, a large table for group work, and three upholstered chairs for reading or studying. Group discussion won't bother anyone as the door and walls are nearly soundproof.
if your group does not need to use a computer, we ask that you use one of the other four study rooms, but those rooms are available on a first-come basis. Groups of two or three can use one of the collaboration stations at the north end of the library. Caution to individuals: if a group needs to use a multi-purpose space that you are occupying, we reserve the right to ask you to relinquish that area so that the group will have an appropriate area for their interaction and collaboration.
Thanks, and we hope this new procedure will accommodate everyone's needs.
