GROUP STUDY ROOM POLICY
3 group study rooms (316,319,320) are located on the upper floor of the Tusculum College Garland Library, and are available with certain restrictions for TC course-related student group study or faculty/staff meetings during library open hours.
Group study rooms may be employed on a first-come, first-serve basis only for up to a 4 hour time period. Student reservations for study rooms are not taken.
As a priority, the Faculty/Staff Lounge (Room 319) is for faculty and staff use only prior to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. It may be checked out to students for daily use at the discretion of a library staff person. Faculty and Staff who wish to use Room 319 weekdays are encouraged to call the library (423-636-7320 or ext. 5320) to check availability and reserve the room. Faculty and Staff are also strongly encouraged to notify the library if, having reserved Room 319, it is no longer needed or there is a change in the reservation time. Faculty and staff not arriving within 15 minutes of their requested reservation will forfeit their reservation and the room will be open to other faculty/staff/students requesting its use between 8 and 5 Monday - Friday.
Should you have any questions, please call the library circulation desk at (423) 636-7320 or extension 5320.
Study room access procedure:
Study rooms are kept locked at all times when not in use. For initial room access, a requesting patron must check out the key to the designated study room in the same manner as checking out a book and return the key to the circulation when finished or at library closing. Keys are bar coded and signed out employing Tusculum College ID cards that will be retained at the circulation desk to be returned to the patron when the study room key is returned. Those to whom keys are charged are responsible for their return and for leaving the study room empty of occupants and in good order with door closed and securely locked.
This policy will be reviewed at the end of each semester and viable recommendations for changes or enhancements will be incorporated.
