Lab Use Policy
All McKeldin Library Instruction Labs are subject to this policy:
1. McKeldin Library Instruction Labs are designated as public space available to library users on a first-come, first-serve basis throughout much of the year. Please talk quietly to avoid disturbing others in the labs.
2. During certain times of the year, McKeldin Library Instruction Labs are designated as a formal teaching space where library staff will be given priority to conduct presentations. During these periods, the rooms will be unavailable for public use. Signs will be posted in advance to notify users when these rooms are reserved.
In preparation for library events, users are requested to exit the lab at least 15 minutes prior to the start of presentations or earlier, as requested by staff.
3. McKeldin Library Instruction Labs are not designated as silent, quiet, or group study space. Locate these areas by referring to the floor maps located near each elevator or ask staff for assistance at the 1st floor Information/Reference Desk.
4. All library users are expected to adhere to the Libraries' Code of Conduct policy.
