The Libraries’ public study spaces, computer workstations, and group work rooms are heavily used especially during peak periods of the semester.  To allow for fair and equitable access to public study spaces, computer workstations, and group work rooms in the library, priority is given to patrons who are present and using the spaces for academic use.  Consideration must be made for those waiting for study spaces, computer workstations, and group work rooms.  Parking (leaving your belongings unattended for the purposes of saving a space) and/or saving seats for others is not permitted.  Patrons cannot leave a study space, computer workstation or group work room for extended periods of time, this varies from 15 minutes in the branch libraries to 30 minutes in the Taylor Family Digital Library.  If the space remains unused for that period of time, staff may remove belongings.  Belongings that have been removed can be retrieved from the Service Desk.  As per the work room booking conditions, if you are more than 10 minutes late for your booking, other users are entitled to the timeslot that you have booked.
