Students need space
Students need a place to study. While these students look happy, they would do better in classes if they had chairs and tables and maybe rooms where they could do group projects.
The KJS Library offers spaces for these and other students to do their work. We also have rooms for groups to study, to practice presentations and take care of the business of being a student. The Library has years of experience at meeting students' needs, and we've tried to create appealing spaces.
Employees also need comfortable places to have meetings and training sessions, and the Library has appropriate meeting spaces for them, too.
Check out the library for your next meeting.
Who, What, Where, When and How--but not in that order
The library has several rooms set aside for students and employees to study and to meet. There are large and small rooms. All rooms have chairs and either a table or desk. Most rooms have a whiteboard. A few rooms have more than one whiteboard, or a phone (for interviews, or meetings where someone has to be off campus), or a video projector and a screen. Some of the rooms have Interactive Television equipment, and still others have cameras and are monitored (as part of Testing and Disability Services). The listing below gives you an idea of what to expect in the various rooms, but is not meant to be comprehensive.
If you have reserved a room, you'll need to check out the key from the Circulation Desk. You will be asked for you ID and the key will be checked out to you. When you hand the key in the key will be checked back in. If you keep the key longer than 4 hours there may be a fine. You are responsible for the key and if lost you will be charged a fee to replace the key.
How do you get a room? A number of rooms are open to be used on a first-come, first served basis. Some of the rooms may be locked, but you simply need to contact one of the library employees to sign out a key and gain access. Other rooms can be reserved. You need to understand that we don't schedule classes into our rooms. You may, however, schedule one of our rooms up to four times per term for a course. Here's our official room policy page. To request a room reservation, please e-mail the library's Reference account (firstname.lastname@example.org), with your name, the room you would like reserve, the start and end time for your meeting, and the group that's having the meeting (It can be as simple as "study group"). Also, include the number of people you hope to fit into the room, so if the room you want is already booked, we can try to find an alternate.
