The seminar room may be reserved by any library user for group meetings (between 2-8 people). Individuals cannot reserve the room except solely for conducting research tasks that require an audiovisual component (e.g., listening to linguistic corpora).
A reservation must be made at least one (1) hour in advance.
The room may be reserved for a maximum of two (2) hours per group. Patrons are asked to honor the time limitation.
After 2 hours of use, another member of the group may request a one-time renewal of the reservation for a maximum of 2 additional hours, IF the room is not already requested or reserved.
For meetings that occur on a recurring basis, a maximum of two (2) weeks of reservations can be booked at one time (exceptions may be made for formal departmental reading groups and seminars). Recurring reservations must be renewed weekly in person at the Literatures and Languages Library front desk.
If the seminar room is unreserved, it may be used on a first come, first served basis. All policies apply to walk-in use of the room. Walk-in users must vacate the room immediately at the time of the next reservation.
If deemed necessary by library staff, use of the room for library business will take precedence over patron use.
NO FOOD may be eaten in the room. Drinks must be in spill-proof containers.
All other University Library and University policies apply while using the seminar room.
