Study Room Usage Policy

Study Room Usage Policy

(Library Rooms 194, 195, 196)

These rooms are available to current Stritch students on a first-come, first-served basis. Request a key at the circulation desk.

Room 196 may be reserved for up to four-hour blocks of time, but only for school project media enhanced production/editing/rehearsal/collaboration sessions only. Request this at the circulation desk. Please use this privilege wisely and advise library staff if you are unable to make your reserved time. Reserved rooms that have not been checked out within 15 minutes of their start time will become available for use by other requesting students. [This is a pilot program for the remainder of the 12/13 academic year.]

Use is guaranteed for up to four hours, after that access must be ceded to other requesting patrons or at the request of library staff. Leaving the room for extended periods of time is not advised and may cause the loss of your occupancy rights. Keep the room key with you in the library, but leave it at the circulation desk if you need to leave the library. This privilege is for brief trips (less than 15 minutes) only. Staff are authorized to make the room available to others if this requirement is exceeded.

These rooms have workstations assigned that are installed with media production software. Patrons requiring the use of these multimedia workstations are given priority. The workstations can be checked out at the circulation desk. Other equipment that might assist your media projects is available for checkout to these study rooms. Patrons who are not using the specialized multimedia software may be asked to move to other study rooms or the general computing and study areas.

You must comply with all university computer use policies. You must provide your own digital media for storage. Do not save your work on library issued computers. The library cannot ensure the retention of your data after your use.

You should know how to use the equipment and software available. Usage guides are available at the circulation desk and on the library website. Library Commons User Support Services & Library staff will help you with your basic questions about hardware/software operation, but we will not plan, organize, produce, edit, or distribute your multimedia projects. You must always log off the workstation when you are finished using it and return it to a staff person at the circulation desk.

White boards must be used with appropriate dry erase markers provided at the circulation desk. Do not use permanent markers on white boards.
