Multifunctional Room LB-322
The Multifunctional Room is designed as an active learning space. It is equipped with tables and chairs that may be set up in various configurations. Three configurations are currently available: (1) workgroup pods (2) debate style and (3) lecture style. The default configuration is that of lecture style. The room is equipped with collaborative learning technology to facilitate active learning sessions.
This room is unavailable after February 22, 2017, reopening in fall 2017.
Seminar Room LB-362
Furnished with a large rectangle table, the Seminar Room seats 22 participants, and has an additional 24 seats against the walls for spectators for a total of 46 seats. The presenter has a table for their materials, mobile whiteboard, and large flat panel displays for both the presentation as well as for viewing external audience members joining via teleconference (such as through Lync or Skype). Audio-video technology is integrated into the room for high quality projection.
Friends of the Library Room LB-361
The Friends of the Library Room has a variety of chairs and seating amenable to small group conversations and large flat panel display as well as integrated audio-video technology. The room seats 24 individuals in lounge seating, and has a capacity of 60 people. There is also a non-movable counter that may be used as a podium or to serve refreshments. The furniture may be removed from the room if required and stored away temporarily. With a configuration in which furniture is removed the standing capacity increases to 120.
Library Classroom / Visualization Studio LB-314
The Library Classroom (the future Visualization Studio) currently provides a space with 30 chairs and 15 electrified tables in a lecture style configured as well as one whiteboard. The room is also equipped with a computer and projector at the instructor’s workstation.
This room is unavailable after February 19, 2017, reopening in fall 2017.
The default configuration will be a lecture set-up in both the Multifunctional Room and the Library Classroom. Other configurations will generally not be available from September to November 2016 due to the anticipated heavy use of these rooms during this time, and multiple bookings the same day.
The desired configuration of the space must be indicated in the reservation request form at the time of the request. The Library will configure the space according to the requested configuration prior to the event, and will be responsible for reconfiguring the furniture to the standard configuration at the end of the event.
The lecture set-up in the Multifunctional Room accommodates 56 students, extra chairs in the room are available to comfortably seat a few more students at the tables. Safety regulations require that the maximum capacity of this room is 60 persons including the instructor. Under no circumstances should this room have more than 60 persons in it.
Outside of these months, for the Multifunctional Room, a request to reconfigure the space to either the workgroup pods of the debate styles (i.e., a configuration other than the default lecture style) requires notice of 10 business days. A request for one of the alternative configurations with less than 10 days' notice cannot be guaranteed. Confirmation of the configuration will be obtained by the Library Administrative Office and communicated to the requestor as soon as possible.
For any signage or wayfinding aids, we suggest contacting the Library Administrative Office to coordinate placement and removal of signage.
