Recently, McCain Library formalized its policy regarding use of McCain 211. The new guidelines, which are posted outside of McCain 211, emphasize that student use of McCain 211 is for individual, quiet study at times when other computers are busy and no events are scheduled in the room. McCain 211 is not intended for group study or presentation practice space.
The guidelines provide alternative options for groups seeking space for these types of activities. These include the 6 group study rooms around the library with or without a library/personal laptop, media viewing room 1 on the Ground Floor, or the Speaking Center.
Students are still encouraged to request that McCain 211 be unlocked if all of the computers on the Ground Floor and First Floor are full. Comments and solutions to better meet the needs of students are welcome. Please contact Liz Bagley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
