Classroom equipment:

  • Twenty-four computer workstations
  • Instructor workstation

Classes or workshops requiring librarian instruction have priority for using this classroom. Independent research (IR) session(s) - no librarian required - may also be scheduled by faculty.

Library Classroom (L-138) Independent Research Policy

  • Librarian led instruction in support of academic work is a priority use for the L-138 classroom.

  • During the first eight weeks of the semester L-138 is reserved for library instruction. However, during this period, the room may be used for independent research provided that:
    1. the room is available, and
    2. the request is submitted no earlier than 3 days prior to the date and time needed.

  • Use of the classroom after the first eight weeks for independent research is available with the following restrictions:
    1. Requests can be made no earlier than the beginning of Week Eight.
    2. Librarian led instruction in support of academic work is a priority use for the L-138 classroom.
    3. Previously scheduled independent research sessions may be rescheduled at the library's discretion with at least one week notice to the original requestor

  • L-138 may be requested for Independent Research no more than two times during the semester per class section.

Scheduling options are listed on the Instruction page. 

Please do not assume a class has been scheduled until you receive an e-mail or phone confirmation to that effect.  

If your instruction needs can not be met within this policy framework, we recommend contacting your Curriculum Technicians at schedule@gccaz.edu for other computer classroom options.

As well, you have additional online options such as the Class Modification Form where you can request to move a class temporarily into a room other than what was normally scheduled and the 25Live Scheduling System where you can check room availability or to request meeting or event space.

Faculty members who schedule a class for independent research in L-138 must be present during the time the class is in session.

Maintenance on the computers will normally be arranged for times when the room is not formally scheduled. In such instances, maintenance operations will have priority over any casual or unscheduled computer uses or informal class sessions.
