Library Classroom (Watzek 245) Policy and Use Guidelines
The primary purpose of the library classroom is to provide a space for Library and Information Technology instruction. Watzek Library and Information Technology staff also reserve the room for meetings, workshops and other events. For this reason, Library and IT staff have priority for reserving the room and will be the primary users of this room, particularly on weekdays.
LC Community Reservations
Members of the Lewis & Clark community (faculty/students/staff) may request to reserve the classroom for academic purposes. These reservations are most likely to be approved for time slots during evening hours and on weekends. Community reservation requests are considered on a case by case basis, and weekday requests are generally not accepted more than one week in advance of the reservation date. Considerations for reservation approval include classroom availability, academic purpose, and the necessity for smart classroom technology. Use of the instructor workstation, projector and MOBY cart needs to be specifically requested.
Direct inquiries to the Administrative Coordinator of the Library, Chel Pennock, at 503-768-7275 or email@example.com. If the room is needed for library or IT teaching, other reserved events may be asked to relocate if reasonable/possible.
The Administrative Coordinator will print a daily schedule of classroom reservations to be posted outside of the classroom each weekday morning. This is a courtesy so that drop-in users will know when the room is reserved and unavailable. Please note that the schedule may change after posting.
Drop in Use
When the classroom is not reserved, it is open for Watzek Library visitors to use during library open hours. Visitors may use the room on a drop-in basis, and must vacate the room if asked to do so by library or IT staff. The room is designed for group work. Individuals may use the room, but should expect that other individuals and/or groups may use it at the same time. The MOBY cart, instructor workstation and projector will not be accessible, but drop-in visitors may use the other equipment in the room, including the wide screen monitor and the white board.
Keep the doors closed--noise travels and the space right outside of the classroom is part of the library quiet zone.
You may rearrange the furniture as you wish, but do not take furniture either out of or into the room.
Please leave the room orderly and clean.
Same food/drink policies as in the rest of the library (no food, covered drinks only).
Please contact Kate Rubick, Instruction Services Librarian, at 503-768-7338 or firstname.lastname@example.org for comments/suggestions regarding this policy.
