Kenneth J. Shouldice Library
Special Purpose Rooms
The library has seven study rooms available for student use on a first come first serve basis. Two of
these rooms (rooms 142 and 137) are locked and can be reserved by students, faculty or staff for special
purposes such as group study, testing, interviewing, etc. Markers for the marker boards should be in the rooms,
but if they are not working ask at the Circulation Desk or Audio-Visual Center for replacements. An
individual may be asked to leave a group study room if it is needed for use by a group.
There are three special conference rooms in the library designated for university staff
use. The Marine Conference Room (room
362) and Hart Room (room 334) are located on the third floor and Conference Room 150 is located on the
first floor or basement. Conference rooms are reserved in advance
through Roxanne Harris in the
Audio-Visual Center (906-635-2400) or Cris Roll at circulation (635-2817). These rooms are not to be
used as substitute seminar or classrooms. The keys for these rooms are to be signed out at the
Circulation Desk. Students will need their LSSU student ID.
Although designated for university staff use, student groups may reserve the
conference rooms for special meetings or study sessions for
particularly large groups with the permission of a librarian or the circulation supervisor.
As true for university use, they are not to be reserved for
weekly ongoing meetings. Reservations are made in advance
with Roxanne Harris or Cris Roll. If rooms are left untidy, this
privilege may be withdrawn. Priority is given to university use whether or not the room
is reserved. If there is a reservation conflict, students will be notified as quickly as possible so
they can make alternate arrangements.
Food and drinks are allowed in the conference rooms for university staff use.
The special collections rooms consist of the Michigan Room (room 330), which provides a
display and reading area for people using special collections materials, and the Hart Room (room 334).
The special collections include the Michigan Collection, the Marine Collection, the Historical Text
Collection, the Special Collection, the Ochsner Collection, the LSSU Archives, and the Hart Collection.
With the exception of the Hart Collection, these materials do not circulate and should leave the room
with special permission only. For security purposes a librarian or staff person will
accompany and monitor people using these materials. Appointments can be made to use the Michigan Room
by calling Mary M. June at 906-635-2862. Food and drink are not allowed in these rooms.
Exhibits for the Gallery, located on the main floor, must be approved by the Gallery
Committee and comply with the Exhibit policies for "The Gallery." Contact Mary M. June at 906-635-2862
with any questions regarding its use. Food and drink are not allowed in these rooms.
