The Undergraduate Library Instruction Classroom is a library teaching space that has 40 computers for student use. The room capacity is 49, including any instructors. Wireless access is available. Guidelines for using the equipment in the lab are available at the instructor’s station in the front of the room.
Primary Use of Space
- The lab prioritizes librarian-led library instruction. It is not available for non-library led classes.
- The lab is not intended for sequential use (daily, weekly, or monthly meetings) of the same class.
- Priority usage is for classes that need to make use of computer-based resources.
Reserving the Space
- Requests should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow 3 business days for a response. Wait for a confirmation of the class before publicizing the information.
- Meetings may be requested no earlier than ten days prior to the actual meeting time to allow for accommodation of instruction requests. Meetings in this room should be limited to those requiring technology.
Using the Room
- The key and clickers are available at the Undergraduate Library Circulation Desk and may be checked out there prior to a scheduled class. The key is barcoded and you will need your i-card to check it out.
- The room is to remain locked at all times.
- When your class is completed:
- Make sure the projector is turned off.
- Close any open applications on the computers.
- Pick up stray papers and other materials.
- Wipe the whiteboards clean for the next user.
- Turn off all the lights.
- Lock the door.
- Return key to the Circulation Desk.
Due to the logistical difficulty of constantly installing and uninstalling software, as well as financing and maintaining software licenses, the room cannot have specialty software installed. In rare instances, the machines may be modified to accommodate a presentation. If you have such a need, please call or email the Library IT Help Desk at (217) 244-4688 or email@example.com at least 2 weeks in advance.
