- Reservations may be made up to two months in advance.
- The rooms may not be reserved for a full semester.
- Reservations may be cancelled if patrons are more than 10 minutes late.
- Patrons are asked to leave a library-approved I.D. at the circulation desk while the room is in use. (Examples of approved I.D.s are: Cameron Student I.D., driver’s license, military I.D., courtesy card, alumni card.)
- If the patron does not have one of the approved forms of I.D., permission for room use must be granted by the librarian on duty.
- If a patron will not allow circulation staff to hold an I.D., the staff can place a note on the card for the room to show that it is in use.
- 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.
- Tutoring conducted by Cameron students is considered group study. The individual being tutored may wait in the study room for the tutor to arrive.
- Patrons are responsible for appropriate use of Library equipment.
- Groups have priority over individuals to use study rooms unless an individual needs to use video viewing equipment.
- Patrons who wish to make presentation rehearsals have priority for using the presentation room.
- One individual may use a room if there is one available when he or she visits the library. 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.
- 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.
- The library decorum policy applies to the study rooms.
- Food and drink, except for plain water in a closed bottle, are prohibited.
- No signs, fliers or banners may be attached to any wall, ceiling or library property.
- Room doors may need to be kept closed during a discussion, video viewing or a presentation rehearsal to avoid disturbing others.
- Rooms must be vacated five minutes prior to library closing.
- Users must clean up after themselves and leave the room in good condition for the next users.
- Misuse of the media rooms and/or equipment may result in loss of library privileges and/or financial obligations.
- Illegal substances are strictly forbidden.
