2. If available, the room and technology will be reserved for the session time period requested by the faculty member. If a session is no longer required, it should be cancelled by phone call or email to the librarian with whom it was scheduled.
3. During the session time period students will have access, at faculty request, to use the Information Commons lab for research or session exercises.
4. If the ILR is unavailable at the requested time, an alternate date/time may be chosen or arrangements made to provide Information Literacy Instruction for the faculty’s class in the open computer lab in the Information Commons or in the faculty member‘s classroom.
5. If an instructor would like to bring a class for library research during class time, arrangements can be made to reserve the computers in the Information Commons for a specific time. Such arrangements should be made as far in advance of need as possible.
