Group Study Rooms

Cameron Library makes several individual rooms available for academic use by Cameron students, faculty and staff.

RESERVATION

  • Group Study Rooms may be reserved only by groups of two or more students. 
  • Reservations can be made for group study, video viewing or presentation rehearsal.
  • The rooms may be scheduled through the circulation desk either by phone or in person.
  • Rooms are reserved for up to two hours. 
  • Reservations may be made up to two months in advance.
  • The rooms may not be reserved for a full semester.
  • If a Group Study Room is not in use, individuals are welcome to use the room until the room is required to accommodate a group.  In the event there are no other available Group Study Rooms, Library staff will politely notify the individual student that the room must be relinquished to the group.
  • Individual Study Carrels are available for individual students on the second floor.  Computers are available in some Carrels (RMs 205 & 208).
  • If an individual student needs access to certain technology that is not available in an Individual Study Carrel, Library staff will make every effort to find a space that will accommodate the individual student’s needs after the student has relinquished a Group Study Room.
  • Reservations may be cancelled if patrons are more than 10 minutes late.

CHECKOUT

  • A patron must show his/her Cameron I.D., or courtesy card, or alumni card to use a study room.
  • The study room will be checked out into the patron’s Cameron Library account.
  • If a community user without a courtesy card account wants to use a study room, he/she needs to apply for a courtesy card account.
  • At the end of two hours, the room can be renewed if no one else is waiting for the room or has the room reserved. 
  • If Library staff determine a checked-out room is unoccupied for more than 15 minutes and a group is waiting, all belongings of the occupants will be placed in the Library’s Lost and Found. The room will then be made available to other patrons. 
  • Patrons are responsible for appropriate use of Library equipment.
  • An individual patron who wants to use a study room may be required to sign an agreement.

PRIORITIES

  • Groups have priority over individuals to use study rooms unless an individual needs to use video viewing equipment.
  • Cameron students, faculty and staff have priority over community users to use study rooms.
  • Patrons who wish to make presentation rehearsals have priority for using the presentation room (Room 116).
  • Parents with kids have priority over other patrons for using the Family Room (Room 118).
  • Honor or PLUS students have priority over graduate students for using the Honor Room (Room 109).
  • An individual may use a room if there is one available. However, if a group or a person who needs to view a film arrives, the individual should vacate the room. All rooms should be in use before anyone is asked to vacate a room. An individual who came earlier should be the first to be asked to vacate a room if there are more than one individual using the rooms.
  • If an individual is waiting for a room and a group wants to renew a room, the group still has priority.
  • If a group is waiting for a room and another group wants to renew a room, the former has priority.
