Places to Study and Work

Kruse Room on the 4th floor

  • The Media Center on the main floor includes:
    • Listening stations with PCs, turntables, CD players, and cassette players.
    • Five Viewing Rooms which can be accessed with a Lawrence ID card and can be reserved by signing up on the clipboard located on the door of each room.
      • There is a two and a half hour limit for each session.
  • Two group study rooms are located on the second and third floors.
    • The group study room on the second floor has a large screen monitor for group viewing or for practicing presentations.
    • These rooms can be accessed with a Lawrence ID card and can be reserved by signing up on the clipboard located on the door of each room.
  • Portable white boards on the first and second floors can be moved to accommodate your group or individual study needs.
  • Folding white boards can be checked out from the circulation desk.
  • Nine student offices (six on fourth floor and three on second floor) are assigned to students on a term-by-term basis. Preference is given to seniors working on honors projects, students whose research depends heavily on library materials, and those who require accomodations. If you are interested in applying for an office, submit the Student Office Request Form.
  • The Kruse Room on the fourth floor is available for quiet study.
  • These maps will help you find where on each floor study spaces are located. Study hard!
  • Please note that the third and fourth floors in the library are meant for quiet study and your courtesy is appreciated.

Reservable Spaces

  • The seminar room on the fourth floor (room 401), the ITC computer lab on the second floor, as well as the Lincoln Room and Milwaukee-Downer Room on the first floor can be reserved through the university's Room Reservation Application.
    • Room 401 is available only for administrative or academic functions, with classes getting priority. Student study groups may be allowed when there is a library staff person on duty and there are no previous reservations on the room.
    • The Milwaukee-Downer and Lincoln Rooms are available for academic or administrative functions on an occasional (i.e., not regularly-scheduled) basis. If these two areas are not otherwise in use, they are available for individual or group study on a first-come first-served basis.
