Library today: O'Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center has new group-study rooms

From UST Libraries

The O'Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center has two new group-study rooms on Level 1 in Rooms 109 and 110, bringing the number of group-study rooms in this library to 10. All UST libraries have meeting rooms or group-study spaces available to users. Some spaces can be reserved in advance.

Using group-study rooms in:

 O'Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center (St. Paul, north campus)

  • Computers have been installed in study rooms LL20, LL21 and 312B. These computers have the usual Microsoft software as the computers in the InfoCommons and other computing labs (Word, Excel, etc.); however, they are not able to print.
  • These rooms can be used by groups of three or more people.
  • Groups can use a room for a maximum of two hours. Any group-study room can be reserved in advance by signing up on the reserve sheets posted on the doors.
  • Unscheduled groups must vacate a room when a scheduled group arrives. Groups lose their right to the room if they do not claim it within 10 minutes of their scheduled time.
  • Although individuals do not sign up to reserve these rooms, a person studying alone is welcome to use a group-study room if open, but will need to vacate it if the room is needed by a group.
  • The group study rooms are not to be used for regularly scheduled meetings.
  • LL21 is a "quiet computer study room." There are several computers in this room available for computer work in a quiet environment.

Charles J. Keffer Library (Opus Hall, Minneapolis campus)

  • The Charles J. Keffer Library offers six group-study rooms (all with computers and white boards) that can be reserved for group or individual (priority given to groups) work by calling (651) 962-4664. Reservations are made for a two-hour maximum; the reservation can be extended if another group is not waiting for the room. 
  • Groups and individuals also may use the computer classrooms, Rooms 105, 110 and 111, Opus Hall, on a space-available basis (no reservations will be taken) if the rooms are not scheduled for classes.
