Library Classroom Policy

The Library Classroom, Room 123, is located on the 1st floor of the John C. Pace Library. The Classroom acts as an open computer lab for UWF faculty, staff, and students when the room is not otherwise reserved.

Technology & Equipment

The library classroom contains:

  • 30 all-in-one student workstations;
  • SMART Board, SMART podium, and two 55-inch LED displays controlled by the instructor's workstation;
  • SMART Document camera;
  • Instructor podium Laptop connections (VGA, HDMI & Ethernet)
  • In-room "voice lift" microphone/speaker system
  • DVD/VHS/BluRay players;
  • Crestron equipment-control unit.

The computers must be accessed with a current Argonet username & password.

Reservations

Priority for reserving the classroom is given to librarians teaching library instruction sessions and library training. However, the Library Classroom may be reserved by UWF affiliates for one-time use, depending upon availability. Standing orders (recurring requests by the same group) cannot be accommodated. On the day of the reservation, groups should sign-in at the Reference/Information Desk.

Student Group Study / Presentation Practice: UWF student groups may reserve the room in advance for academic purposes only. Due to the high-demand for library computers during the day, student groups may only reserve the classroom after 4:00 pm Monday-Thursday or after 12:00 pm on Friday, for two hours at a time. The room is not available for reservations on the weekend. The Library Classroom closes when there is not a Reference attendant on duty.

UWF Department and Faculty Requests (Training, etc): UWF Departments (faculty and staff) may reserve the Library Classroom in advance for training and other academic purposes. Requests should be made at least one day prior to the reservation.
