Library instruction classes for students are given top priority in scheduling the library classroom. No regularly scheduled classes are to be held in the classroom unless they are library related and a librarian is connected with the class.
If a member of the Vassar Community wishes to schedule the classroom for a non-library-related activity, that person may do so within one week before the activity if the room has not been booked for library instruction by that time. If the activity must be scheduled earlier than one week before and the room is needed for a library instruction session, library instruction takes priority over non-library usage if the library instruction is requested up to one week before the activity. The librarian needing to use the classroom may contact the individual who has scheduled the room and suggest an alternative space.
If the room has been booked for a non-instruction library use, such as a vendor demonstration, and there is a request for library instruction, library instruction takes priority and the individual booking the room for another use should make alternative arrangements. When the scheduled library use is instruction for staff and there is a request for instruction for students, instruction for students takes priority. A list of classroom spaces and their technology capabilities is available via the CIS Service Catalog.
All computers in the classroom run OSX and are equipped with the campus standard image. Installation of additional software needed for presentations should meet the following criteria:
Technical problems related to use of the classroom should be referred to email@example.com or call x7224. Instructors who wish to guarantee technical support should make their own arrangements prior to the class meeting. Facilities problems related to the room (lighting, temperature, seating) should be referred to the Library Director's Office.
Instructors/presenters from outside the Vassar community should provide the technical requirements for their presentation to their Vassar contact at least 2 weeks in advance. The Vassar contact should e-mail these requirements to the Library Director's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
