Reserve Group Study Rooms Online; No Key Needed

Marketing and Communications | January 17, 2012

As of Jan. 9, all group study room reservations for Sterling C. Evans Library and Library Annex can be made online.

Previously, only West Campus Library and Medical Sciences Library had online reservation options. That’s all changed with the introduction of a system for Evans and Annex.

“It’s very nice and easy to use,” Adriana Gonzalez, assistant professor of Research Services, said. “It functions like a hotel reservation and has a calendar so you can see what’s available.”

Unlike a hotel, the group study rooms will be unlocked. Keys will not be required, and patrons will no longer need to stop at the front desk.

“We want everyone to feel welcome to use the spaces provided, with the understanding that individuals with reservations have the right of way,” Gonzalez said.

A group study room must be occupied by at least two people to be considered “group study.” Individual study rooms will still be available in Evans and patrons will continue to check them out at the Evans AskUs Desk.

“Reserving a group study room should be virtually effortless now,” Gonzalez said. “We wanted to put all the power in the patron’s hands.”
