New TVs in Group Study Rooms

In January, the Vera Bracken Library took receipt of 5 new HD (720p) televisions and DVD/VCR combo players for the Group Study Rooms. The new televisions feature a 32" panoramic display, which is a significant improvement over the the previous 19" CRT televisions.

The Group Study Rooms provide a convenient place for students to perform group projects in by giving them an environment that allows them to focus on the work at hand or have discussions.

  • Faculty, staff, and students can book the Group Study Rooms.

  • Rooms can be booked for as long as 2 hours.

  • Access is granted on a first-come, first-serve basis—sign-up sheets for the current week are outside each room.

  • Booking for subsequent weeks can be made at the Circulation Desk.

  • Groups requiring a room take precedence over any one individual occupying any Group Study Room.

  • If a group is 10 minutes late, the room goes to the next waiting group.

  • The rooms also have access to basic cable television and whiteboards for collaboration—whiteboard erasers and markers can be checked-out from the Circulation Desk.
