Library Instruction Classroom Use Policy


The Library Instruction Classroom (Room 120) is located on the first floor of the Information Commons in the south west corner of the building. When not scheduled, the room is available as open lab space. The schedule for the room is posted outside the door and available to staff at the service desks. Users are expected to vacate the room 15 minutes prior to scheduled events or any time library or IT staff need the room.


The Library Instruction Classroom contains 24 PCs, an instructor work station (the same as available in all e-classrooms on campus), a white board, a smart board, and a networked printer. A standard print station is available. The classroom is configured in rows and cannot be rearranged. Extra chairs are generally available in the room, though space is limited for additional users.


The primary use of the Library Instruction Classroom is library instruction/training and IT workshops and/or training. If available, the Library Instruction Classroom may be scheduled by Loyola faculty and Staff for other instructional uses. The room may be reserved for short-term use only; regularly scheduled courses or events will not be scheduled.

To ensure availability of the Library Instruction Classroom for library instruction/training and IT workshops/training, general room reservations for the fall and spring semesters will not be accepted until the 4th week of the academic term. For summer and interim periods, approved room reservation requests will be scheduled upon receipt assuming the room is available. Please note that room reservations are not considered complete unless the requester has received a confirmation e-mail.
