Lab Availability

McKeldin Library welcomes UMD faculty and staff to reserve the labs for an individual event, class, or training of up to four hours in length. Due to the high demand for reserverable space, we ask that these requests be submitted at least two weeks in advance. We are unable to accept requests beyond the current semester, or for recurring events. While every effort will be made to meet requests, lab availability cannot be guaranteed.

  • McKeldin librarians lead information literacy instruction sessions for over 20,000 students per year. To accommodate the needs of our faculty and students, the library is unable to accept requests for the space during the months of September, October, February, or March.

  • Technical assistance cannot be guaranteed the day of your event. If you have questions regarding technology, please email libues@umd.edu beforehand.

  • 6101 is equipped with Dell touch-screen desktop computers with MS platforms, as well as an overhead projector. The software for computers includes MS Office Suite, video editing, and screen capture software. For specific software names, refer to the software list. Users accept liability for any damages to the equipment that occur during the reservation.

  • Whiteboards and whiteboard markers for use in the classroom may be checked out at the TLC desk on the 2nd floor of McKeldin Library with a UMD ID. The TLC typically lends one whiteboard per user at a time, but you may be able to request more depending on the current demand.

  • When not in use by UMD faculty and staff, Mck6101, McK6103, and McK6107 serve as open study space for library users. We cannot guarantee exclusive access to the room before or after the reservation time.

  • Please contact Teaching and Learning Services at libues@umd.edu with any questions.
