The Library reserves the right to cancel any reservation that is not in accord with our policies
Anyone who reserves a room is expected to clean up after themselves and leave the room ready for the next group. Remove all belongings and dispose of trash when you exit.
All group study rooms have a whiteboard. If you do not have your own dry-erase markers or erasers, the User Services Desk can provide markers and erasers for check-out. Use only appropriate markers and erasers on the whiteboards.
Please respect your fellow students and keep noise to a minimum. Individuals who need to listen to audio while in a study room should still use earbuds.
