Scheduling and Reserving Rooms in Boatwright Memorial Library

Boatwright Library staff welcomes the university community to use the library building space for a variety of functions. Please review the policies and procedures below.

Media Resource Center (MRC) Rooms

If a MRC room is used for a full-credit course or a weekly film lab session, the University Registrar’s office will book the room.

If faculty or staff members need to book a MRC room for a single film screening or for a special program, class session or meeting, please use the Centralized Scheduling Service. If you are requesting a film screening, be sure to complete all of the questions for film screening support.

Please note the following policies:

  • The classrooms may only be used during the MRC’s hours of operation.
  • MRC Classrooms may only be reserved by faculty and staff, and should not be used for private study. Students may book these classrooms for presentations through a faculty member.
  • Library staff are not responsible for taking class attendance for screenings.

TMSS will provide all support, maintenance, emergency dispatches and training for the MRC classrooms. Hours are 8 a.m.- 7:30 p.m. and TMSS staff encourage staff and faculty to use the phone support system in the classrooms if assistance is needed. TMSS will also set up training appointments for faculty and staff to understand how to operate equipment in the classrooms.

Group and Individual Study Rooms
Film Viewing Room

The library provides 11 group study rooms and 8 individual study rooms, primarily for student use. However, faculty and staff can reserve them during the daytime hours.  All reservations are self-scheduled through the LibCal system.

The viewing room is located in the Media Resource Center, and is available for groups of 3-6 people to watch films for course-assignments or research. The room is equipped with a high definition TV with 3D capabilities, a multi-region Blu-Ray player, and VHS player. All reservations are self-scheduled through the LibCal system.

Scheduling Library Seminar Rooms, Conference Rooms and the Boatwright Computer Classroom

Library staff can schedule these rooms via Outlook Calendar for meetings and library instruction. Library instruction has priority use for Seminar Rooms and the Computer Classroom (B26). All university community requests (one time) for these spaces should be routed to Malorie Olivier, Administrative Coordinator, Boatwright Library.
