Carrels are available on a first-come first-serve basis for all eligible PhD students and M.A./Th.M students with approved thesis.
Carrels will be assigned by the Circulation Supervisor.
Carrels will be checked out through the circulation system, and will need to be renewed every semester.
Carrels are loaned “as is.”
The library is not responsible for any lost or missing item(s) in your carrel, including personal desk chairs.
Two (2) violations of library carrel policy will result in the loss of carrel privileges.
If the carrel is seldom used, the public services staff reserves the right to ask you to relinquish the carrel.
Should all carrels be reserved, a waiting list will be instituted.
This policy will be reviewed periodically for needed revisions.
Carrel Usage Policy
Carrels are for work primarily and not to be used primarily for storage. For storage, please check out up to two library shelves.
All library books must be checked out.
All reference books and journals must be returned to the circulation book drop or reference reshelving cart daily. NONE may be left in carrels overnight.
Only covered drinks are permitted. No food allowed.
Coffee pots and hot pots may not be used or stored in the library.
Students may not bring in personal bookcases or additional storage units. Please check out a shelf if more space is needed.
No additional items may be stored under or around the carrels. Library books and personal items must be stored on the carrel bookshelf or the desktop. (Preferably, reserve a shelf for large quantities of books.)
Students may not make modifications to the carrel space to create additional privacy by affixing items to the carrels.
Carrels are for personal use only and are not to be “loaned” to other patrons for use.
Talking on cell phones at carrels is not permitted.
