Group study and media rooms

Four group study rooms and a media viewing room are available. All rooms seat 6 and are enhanced with plug-and-play screen technology. The tables contain outlets and four HDMI plugs so laptops and other devices can plug into the HD wide-screen display. Several adapters ("dongles") and whiteboard markers are available to borrow at the Reference Desk and the Circulation Desk. In addition, the media viewing room is equipped with a DVD player and a VCR (for viewing VHS).

Reservations are required to use the group study rooms and the media viewing room.
