Guidelines for Use of the Library Instruction Room by Non-Library Faculty and Staff
back to request forms

The primary purpose of the Library Instruction Room is to provide a hands-on learning experience for CNR students in how to search the Library Catalog and Subscription Databases.  Because the opportunities to provide this service are to a large extent dependent on the schedules of both teaching faculty and the librarians, it is extremely important that the use of the Library Instruction Room for purposes other than library instruction not interfere with the Library Instruction Program.

Before reserving the LI room for a non-library class, please contact the Registrar for alternate classroom availabilty (914) 654-5213.

In the event that a computer instruction room is not available elsewhere on campus, the following procedures must be followed for reserving the Library Instruction Room by non-Library Faculty and Staff: 

  1. Contact Gill Library with as much advance notice as possible regarding the day, date and time that you wish to use the Library Instruction Room.  If possible, have at least one alternate date.

 

  1. Complete the Gill Library Online Request Form for Use of the Library Instruction Room by Non-Library Faculty & Staff  (Paper form available at Gill Library Reference Desk.)

 

  1. If the instructor is unfamiliar with the Library Instruction Room computer system, it is necessary to schedule an orientation session with a Reference Librarian prior to use of the Room.

 

  1. On the day that the Library Instruction Room is to be used, arrive at Gill Library at least fifteen minutes prior to your scheduled time to assure that the system is ready for use.

 If you have additional questions regarding the use of the Library Instruction Room, contact Mark Haber, Coordinator of Library Instruction at mhaber@cnr.edu or at x.5491 or x.5342.
