Study Rooms Polices

 

Laredo College’s Libraries have study rooms located at both locations. The Harold R. Yeary library has 19 study rooms and the Senator Judith Zaffirini has two available study rooms. They are all equipped with tables, chairs and some with white glass dry erase boards. We encourage students to use these study rooms, and we want to make it as easy as possible. However, like any scarce resource, sometimes demand will exceed supply. Therefore, we need to set a few policies so everyone knows what to expect.

 

Purpose

 

These rooms are a place for LC students to work independently or study together. These study rooms are not to be used for private business or commercial purposes (e.g. private office space, the sale or solicitation of goods). These study rooms are intended to support academic work by students, staff and faculty.

 

Policies

 

  • Study rooms are only available during the hours the library is open.
  • The maximum reservation period is 4 hours.
  • A study room reservation can be made up to 7 days in advance.
  • A reservation that is more than 15 minutes late forfeits the reservation.
  • Library staff reserves the right to resolve schedule problems by adjusting reservations or schedules.
  • If study room is not occupied for more than an hour, reservation will canceled and make it available for next patron.
  • Furniture is not to be moved in or out of study room except by authorized staff.
  • Laredo College nor the LC Libraries are responsible for lost or stolen items that are left in study rooms.
  • Community members are allowed to make reservations with the understanding that LC students, faculty and staff take preference and priority.

 

 

Study Room Use

 

Individuals and groups are expected to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner at all times. The rooms are not soundproof, and as such, it is asked to monitor the volume of their conversations so as not to disrupt others. Individuals and groups are expected to clean up behind themselves and leave the room tidy and clean for the next use.

 

  • Behaviors which results in expulsion from study rooms include, but are not limited to:
  • Disruptive or threating behavior
  • Vandalism
  • Napping/sleeping
  • Public Display of Affection
  • Failure to follow directions from library staff.
