Students may reserve library meeting rooms for up to two hours at either campus for group study by filling out a Meeting Room Reservation Request located on the Library Moodle site. Meeting room reservations must be made a minimum of one day ahead of the desired reservation date. Reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis. Confirmed reservations may be viewed on the Computer Lab and Meeting Room Calendar on the Library Moodle site. If the students are unable for any reason to keep the reservation made, or will be late to come to the library, they need to contact the library staff at the library where the reservation is being held as soon as possible. If the students do not contact the library staff and do not arrive by thirty minutes after the time of the reservation, the reservation will be cancelled and the room will be made available to others.
