  • The study room will be checked out into the patron’s Cameron Library account.
  • If a community user without a courtesy card account wants to use a study room, he/she needs to apply for a courtesy card account.
  • At the end of two hours, the room can be renewed if no one else is waiting for the room or has the room reserved.
  • If Library staff determine a checked-out room is unoccupied for more than 15 minutes and a group is waiting, all belongings of the occupants will be placed in the Library’s Lost and Found. The room will then be made available to other patrons. 
  • Tutoring conducted by Cameron students is considered group study. The individual being tutored may wait in the study room for the tutor to arrive.

PRIORITIES

  • Groups have priority over individuals to use study rooms unless an individual needs to use video viewing equipment.

  • A patron who wishes to use the microfilm reader has priority for using the microfilm room (Room 102).
  • Cameron students, faculty and staff have priority over community users to use study rooms.
  • One individual may use a room if there is one available when he or she visits the library. However, if a group or a person who needs to view a film arrives, the individual should vacate the room. All rooms should be in use before anyone is asked to vacate a room.
