Reserve a Study Carrel

Last year we allowed students studying for the bar to reserve a study carrel for their personal use.  Based on the positive feedback from that program this year we are making 27 of the law library’s 80 study carrels available for students to reserve during the Fall trimester. Each class will be allotted 9 carrels.

Carrels will be made available on a first come, first served model.  Sign-up will begin Thursday September 6th at 8am at the circulation desk.

3Ls may select a carrel anywhere in the library. 3Ls who have a reserved carrel will be able to renew their carrel for Bar Study provided it is on the Mezzanine level.

1Ls and 2Ls may only select carrels in the lower level.

After the September 12, if fewer than 27 carrels are reserved the unclaimed carrels may be reserved by members of any class. A waiting list will be established during sign up for this purpose.

Any carrels not reserved by October 15 will remain an open carrel for the rest of the trimester.

The library staff will not disturb materials left in study carrels, however, the library is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Carrels must be kept neat and clean. Trash, particularly perishable food items, wrappers, or containers must be properly disposed of at the end of each day.

Any damage to the carrel must be reported to the library staff promptly.

Before attaching anything to the carrel you must check with Wayne Goke to ensure it will not damage the carrels.

The library staff reserves the right to require material inappropriate for a professional environment be removed.
