Make a Reservation

Librarians may reserve 720 if your students need access to computers during class time. 720 is heavily used, so we urge you to get your requests in early!

You can see if the space is available for scheduling by going to your Exchange Calendar:

  • select "Add Calendar"
  • select "From Directory"
  • search for "IT-LIB-720"

Single session reservations must be made two weeks in advance.

Reservations are accepted for class sessions when students will be working on computers. Reservations are not accepted for lectures or student study time. The librarian must be present throughout the class session.
