New Library Group Study Rooms: A Big Hit !!
Kalsang Chodon, Nursing Major: “I found out about the rooms while randomly exploring the new library study space….we used the room for our group discussions before the exams”
One of the new exciting services being provided to students since the kickoff of the Library’s expansion, is the very popular Group Study Rooms. The Group Study Rooms are designed to provide our students with a quiet environment to work or study. The spacious rooms are located on the newly constructed and beautifully designed second floor of the Library Media Resources Center
Eric Avila, Liberal Arts Social Science and Humanities: “ We worked on a video presentation, the tech was very helpful, I really enjoyed the experience”
Each room is equipped with a State of the Art HDMI digital collaboration system of Large Screen 1080p displays and user friendly control panels. The collaboration systems allow multiple, smaller work groups to be created in a single work space. Students are able to plug in and interface with their mobile devices, i.e. iPads, laptops or phones.
Groups are defined as two or more students with a maximum of six students. Scheduling the rooms are as simple as going online and filling out the reservation request form, or stopping by the Media Services Help Desk. Reservations can be booked up to two weeks in advance.
