How Do I…

 

Reserve a Study Room?

You can book study rooms online with our Library Scheduler at http://libraryscheduler.checkappointments.com/. From the main library page, you can quickly get here by looking under the “Meet the Research Librarians” block on the right and clicking on “Make an appointment.”

Follow the steps on the webpage to select your room, the duration of the reservation (study rooms can be reserved for up to 3 hours), and the date/time you wish to use it (only available times will be shown). Provide your name and email, and you will receive a confirmation email for your room reservation shortly. Group study rooms are for use by groups of 2 or more students. Each contains a whiteboard, network and power jacks, and a table with 4 chairs.
