New Services @ Your Law Library: Study Room Reservations

by Sarah Prosory 13. January 2011 11:49

A new service the Law Library is implementing is Study Room Reservations. Beginning on Tuesday, January 18th 2011, students will have the option to reserve the study rooms in the Law Library and Buildings B & D. A reservation is not required.

However, in order to use the study rooms in the Law Library, you must first visit the Circulation Desk to see if the room is reserved and to check-out the room before occupying it. For study room use in Buildings B & D, check the study room's door for any notices of reservations. No need to check-out a study room that is located in Buildings B & D.

Study rooms can be reserved for a maximum of 2 hours. A group of students takes priority over an individual student.

This policy has changed.

Please see our website at www.phoenixlaw.edu/studyrooms for the complete policy.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Circulation Desk at (602) 682-6897 or email.

Happy studying! Laughing
