General Use Guidelines And Priorities. (reviewed 2022)
When not reserved by faculty, study rooms may be used on a first-come, first-served basis in accordance with the following priorities:
- Overall priority for the use of rooms is given to EVMS students.
- Priority is given to primary clients (individuals or groups) using curriculum-related audiovisual resources/equipment.
- Group study rooms are intended for use by groups who are studying together. Groups have priority over one or more people studying individually. Individuals must yield or share the space.
- Use of the group study rooms is contingent upon following library policy and upon observing the needs of others for quiet study.
- Personal belongings may not be left in the study rooms in order to hold them; items left unattended will be moved to the Circulation Desk and consigned to the lost-and-found if not retrieved.
