Reserve Procedure -

  • Only one reservation may be made at time.
  • Other students may still use the reserved room on a first come, first served basis until the time the reserved.
  • Groups without reservations may not displace current users of a study room, even single users. However they may reserve an "under-occupied" room – one occupied by less than half of its seating, effective 15 minutes after completion of the reservation.
  • In the case of reserving an "under-occupied" room, the librarian will, at his or her convenience, choose the most appropriate room and place a reservation notice in its window. After posting the reservation notice, the occupant(s) will have 15 minutes to vacate the room.

 

Prohibited Use -

In order to ensure adequate student access to the Thrift Library’s group study facilities, reservations will be accepted solely for study groups unless granted special permission by the Library Director.

Reservations will not be accepted for the following - unless given special permission

  • Individual use
  • Reservations of more than one room at a time
  • Repetitive use
  • Clubs
  • Bible studies
  • Committees
  • Meetings
  • Office space
  • Class use

 

Limitations - Due To Covid - 19 pandemic:

  • 2 hour maximum with no renewal when others are waiting.
  • Generally 2 occupants per study room (4 per Rooms 101 103 and 106)
  •  No food or Drinks
  • Noise must be kept to a minimum so as not to disturb others. Rooms are not soundproof!
  • Failure to occupy the room within 15 minutes of start time will result in cancelation of reservation.

 

Open Use Policy -

While the Study Room “Reservation” Policy is purposely restrictive, its “Open Use Policy” is not. Simply stated, “Unreserved rooms may be used on a first come, first served basis.” Users must comply with all library and university rules

 

NOTES -

  • All rooms are left unlocked and are available on a first come, first serve basis - unless they have been reserved.
