There are a number of rooms in the Library Media Center that can be used for classes, meetings, and group study.
The Library Media Center's Collaborative Classroom (L-138) is available for instruction sessions, primarily for classes and workshops requiring librarian instruction or supervision.
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.
The first eight (8) weeks of the semester and in the first two weeks of summer I & II sessions, L-138 is reserved for library instruction. However, during this period, faculty may request the use of L-138 for their class(es) provided that (1) the room is available, and (2) that their request is submitted no earlier than 3 days prior to the date and time needed. Faculty may request the use of L-138 for independent research no more than two times per course per section during a semester due to high demand for the room.
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.
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.
Group study rooms are available in the Library Media Center to enable small and medium sized groups to confer and study together in an enclosed environment so as not to disturb others in the library. They are not be be used for functions such as faculty/staff committee meetings, classes, seminars or lectures, or commercial activities for which other facilities are available.
The rooms are available for use by GCC students, faculty, and staff.
These rooms are primarily to be used for group work. A "Group" is two or more students. Groups have priority over individual student use. Students working alone may be asked to move to other study areas. Group study rooms have priority numbers assigned to them; individual students in these rooms will be asked to leave if a group needs to use the room. Selection of the room will be based on the priority number (e.g., Priority 1 will be will be the first room that library staff will approach to request a single occupant to vacate when a group needs a study room.)
Scheduling of the rooms in advance is not necessary. Availability and usage is on a first-come, first-served basis. Use of the rooms is limited to 2-hour time periods.
These rooms are not sound proof. Users should maintain voice and noise levels at a normal, conversational level.
The Library assumes no responsibility for the loss or damage of any personal property left in a study room.
All other applicable Library policies, including those those regulating conduct, apply to the group study rooms.
Windows may not be obstructed, and doors will be accessible at all times.
All equipment, periodicals, reference books or other library materials should be removed from the study room after use.
The Library reserves the right to inspect study rooms at any time and to remove unauthorized materials or prohibited items.
