Instructional Space Usage Policy

Ingram Library has three dedicated instructional spaces: one on the 1st floor (the "Flex Classroom") and two on the 3rd floor (the "Aquarium" and the "Glassroom").

Library instructional spaces are limited and demand for them is high. Therefore, the order of priority for scheduling these spaces is:
   Library instruction needs (LIBR1101 and workshops)
   Public History classes
   Center for Academic Success-sponsored tutoring programs
   Other class requests

Occasionally a non-Library faculty member will ask to use one of Ingram Library's instructional spaces for a class research day (not involving instruction by a librarian). In the fall of 2015 Instructional Services is experimenting with allowing faculty members to reserve a library instructional space for this purpose. This is a pilot program to help Ingram Library determine the demand for this kind of usage. Interested faculty should email Anne Barnhart for further information.

When the rooms are not reserved for the purposes mentioned above, they are to be open for student use. Student groups may not reserve these spaces. Students using the 3rd floor spaces should keep in mind that these are not group study rooms since the 3rd floor is the quiet floor.

Library staff and faculty needing space for library instruction workshops or training sessions can schedule the space through the shared calendar system.

Public History class and Center for Academic Success tutoring session usage is scheduled through the Instructional Services division.

Library staff and faculty are asked to not schedule workshops until all LIBR1101 and Public History semester-long courses have been scheduled. These are scheduled well in advance of the start of the semester.

Any questions regarding this policy should be directed to Anne Barnhart, Head of Instructional Services.
