Group Study Rooms
Group Study rooms in the library are available on a first-come first-served basis for drop-in group study, computing, video/DVD viewing, and small and large group meetings. Rooms may also be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. For Library room reservations, please contact Randi Kennedy at 410-337-6362 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Room reservations are either listed in the weekly room schedule or posted daily.
Some guidelines regarding room reservations and usage in the Library:
- Reservations can be made by any member of the Goucher Community-staff, faculty, and students-who are undertaking Goucher business. Reservations for private functions, like private parties, need to be made through the Events & Conference Services (410-769-5054).
- Room reservations for those outside the Goucher Community must be made through Events & Conference Services (410-769-5054).
- Reservations must be made during the work week (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) in order to be entered into the schedule.
- When reserving a space, please provide your name, how many in your group, purpose, and class (if applicable).
- Students can reserve a room for meetings, study groups, or projects, but these reservations cannot exceed three hours.
- Please try to make room reservations at least 24 hours in advance.
- If a room is empty, your group may use it on a first-come, first-served basis. You must vacate a reserved room at the appropriate time.
- Study rooms may not be reserved for weekly time-slots. Exceptions can be made at the discretion of Library staff.
- Room reservations cannot be made for DVD/video viewing outside of face-to-face teaching activities (see Viewing Media for more information).
- Study room reservations are not accepted during the Reading Period and Finals Week.
- Rooms are not locked and are available whenever the library is open.
- Please be courteous to others and recycle or dispose of any trash before you leave.
A group is two or more people, one of whom must be a Goucher student, faculty, or staff member. Groups have priority over individuals, and one member of a group may not "hold" a room for others.
Individuals may be asked to vacate group study rooms when groups are in need of collaborative study space. Individuals seeking a quiet space are encouraged to use the Quiet Floors (2nd or 4th Floor) in the stacks.
