It’s that time of year again, when summer students and faculty are asking about carrel and locker space in the library for the duration of the summer. Here’s a quick refresher of our guidelines.
Lockers are available to anyone associated with the College: LS and BLSE students & faculty, and academic-year students, faculty & staff. Local guest borrowers are not allowed to check out lockers. Lockers are checked out for 28 days and may be renewed in person at the Circ Desk, or online through My Midcat. Lockers are available now. Please remind patrons they should use orange due date slips on all library materials they plan to keep in their locker.
Carrels 1-68, or all the carrels on the upper floor and upper mezzanine on the side of the building which faces Axinn, are available, as are all carrels on the lower level (#s 250-273). We will begin loanging them out starting Friday June 12th, to anyone associated with the College. Guest borrowers are not eligible. Carrel keys are checked out until the end of LS or BLSE for those patrons (August 14 and August 8, respectively), and until August 31 for all academic-year patrons. Please remind patrons they should use orange due date slips on all library materials they plan to keep in their carrel.
The carrel rooms (70-227) will be set aside for individual Language Schools to use, as communal spaces for each School so that the Language Pledge can be maintained, but students can work together. The keys to these carrels are not to be checked out to anyone, as the rooms are to be an open space for each School.
All carrels on the Lower Level (250-273) are used as open study carrels for any patron, whether associated with the College or not, and their keys are also not to be checked out.
A carrel map for carrels 1-68 is located on my desk at Circ, to give to patrons to help them decide what carrel they’d like to check out. Please X out a carrel number when you check out the corresponding key. Any questions, ask me or any supervisor. Also if any patron has questions or concerns, please refer them to me. Thanks!
