Library Instruction Rooms

Library instruction rooms are primarily intended to support library instruction classes, but we encourage faculty to use the rooms and experiment in our teaching spaces! Learn more about them:

Guidelines for Equitable Access and Room Reservations

In order to allow as many faculty members as possible to use these new spaces, we use the following guidelines when booking the rooms:

  • Rooms are not available for booking through the Registrar.
  • One room is left available for library instruction at all times. This guideline is flexible and exceptions are at the Library’s discretion. Granting exceptions is most likely during the second half of the semester when we do less instruction.
  • Rooms can be scheduled for up to one week at a time or one day per week (subject to availability). Requests for more frequently recurring classes will only be considered after mid-semester. A limited number of semester-length reservations are accepted on a semester-by-semester basis. Any exceptions to this guideline are also at the Library’s discretion.
  • All faculty that schedule these spaces are encouraged to attend an in person hands-on orientation to learn how to use the technology in the rooms and to ensure that the equipment works as expected with their laptop and/or device.

Class-by-Class and Week-by-Week Room Reservations

Teaching faculty may reserve either room on a class-by-class or week-by-week basis and are encouraged to do so to experiment with pedagogical methods using the technology and flexible furniture in these spaces. To make a reservation:

Non-Class Room Reservations

  • Rooms can be booked for meetings and other events during non-class meeting times.
  • Rooms are open for student use when not reserved.

Food & Beverage

Personal food and beverages are permitted in the North and South Instruction Rooms; however, the rooms were not designed or intended to host catered events. For catered events, please request the use of the Todd Multipurpose Room.
