Current Library Services: Study Spaces

This guide provides information regarding the library's remote services such as links to online resources and research assistance tools.

Small Group Study

We have flipped the library study areas during the COVID-19 pandemic. We ask that small group study be done in the open areas of the library at the large tables available on the main floors. Chairs have been placed 6 feet apart. Please do not move the furniture! Feel free to study and discuss with friends in these areas (with masks on and physical distancing in place!). The study rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors are now reserved for individual, quiet study.

Individual Study
The study rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors are now reserved for individual, quiet study. By doing this, individuals can remove their mask while using the individual study rooms since it is like a personal "office" space. Individuals are asked to sanitize the room when they are finished using it by utilizing the sanitizing wipes located on each floor.

We also have individual study carrels available all around the library and in the library annex. Masks should be worn when using the study carrels. If you would like assistance finding one of these quiet locations to study, please stop by the front desk and ask!

Auditorium Study Groups

Small student groups of 5 or less can book the basement auditorium for group studying in the late afternoons, evenings and weekends. Masks and physical distancing are required when using this space. Please book in advance to ensure timely approval; weekend bookings must be submitted before Friday at 3 pm. Click the button below to submit your booking request for approval by library staff.
