General Guidelines for Class / Group Use of Classrooms & CLC Computers
The Library provides several computer facilities for use by UTEP classes and other groups. These include classrooms 204A & B, Room 309, and the Microforms and Media (M&M) area. All of these areas are for instruction and research related to information literacy.
Rooms 204A & 204B are reserved for UTEP class instruction focusing on information literacy. Instructors or Library staff should reserve these rooms with the Reference Department Instruction Coordinator.
Room 309 is configured for lecture format with a single instructor’s work station. However, the Library is “wired for wireless” and students can use their own PCs or borrow wireless laptops from the Collaborative Learning Center (CLC) to use in room 309. Instructors or Library staff may reserve room 309 by contacting the Reference Department Instruction Coordinator.
When an instructor reserves a Library computer facility, the Reference Department Instruction Coordinator will inform the relevant subject specialist. The subject specialist will contact the instructor to offer their assistance and support.
The CLC Coordinator should be contacted regarding special equipment needs.
Class/group instruction should not be conducted in the CLC area as it disrupts the activities of other CLC users. When unannounced UTEP groups are observed using the CLC, CLC and/or Reference public service staff should inform them that:
M&M may be used by UTEP and outside groups requiring computers in support of their activities in the Library. This location also allows for intra-group discussion and collaboration. While reservations are not required they are recommended so users are assured of the availability of this facility. Reservations should be made with the Reference Department Instruction Coordinator.
