New service enabling students to book study rooms online

As you may know, the library reserves 22 group study rooms for undergraduate and graduate student use—twelve group study rooms (up to 6 occupants), and ten large group study rooms (up to 12 occupants). Students may now book these study rooms themselves through any web browser, smart phone, or web-ready mobile device.

Students may book one or more rooms per day for a total of four hours, and rooms may be reserved up to two weeks in advance. Rooms are equipped with tables and chairs, electrical outlets, wireless internet access, and dry-erase boards. Laptops and dry-erase markers may be checked out at the Library and IT Service Center on the first floor. Rooms 238, 302 and 303 are equipped with large screen, wall-mounted monitors and room 238 is also configured for web-conferencing.
