  • a large conference table that can seat 10-15 people, plus a few armchairs around the room
  • a Mac computer with a large wall screen and webcam


Faculty and staff may request the Library Faculty Study no more than one semester in advance, by scheduling an event through 25Live

Library Classroom (L 146)

Capacity: 50

classroom with tables and chairs facing a large screen and whiteboard on the far wall

The Library Classroom is primarily used for research and information literacy workshops taught by Library faculty, but may be used by others when the room is available.

  • a teaching station with a PC with webcam, large screen and projector, and Ladybug document projector
  • two large whiteboards at each end of the room
  • Chromebooks can be reserved when reserving the room


Requests for use of L 146 that do not involve research/information literacy instruction may be made no more than one week in advance, by scheduling an event through 25LiveIf you would like to reserve Chromebooks for use during your event, be sure to request them as a "Resource" in 25Live.

To schedule research/information literacy instruction, contact Ellen Carey as far in advance as possible (see the Research and Information Literacy Instruction page of this guide for more information).
