There are several kinds of study spaces in the library:

Group Study Spaces

The library has 3 large group study spaces:

Open Group Study:  Rose Room on Level E, access through the Pilling Room: This is an open group study area, no reservation is needed. Some individuals are currently using this space for quiet study, but the room is intended for groups. Guidelines are posted in the room requesting that the door be closed during conversations.

Two Group Study Rooms (205 and 212) on Level E: These spaces must be reserved (in person) at the Circulation /Reserve counter. These spaces are for Drew students and faculty only in groups of two or more. A Drew ID card is required to charge out the room key, the ID is held until the key is returned. Time period is two hours with the possibility of an extension, if no one else has signed up for the room.

There are also large tables in the Reference area of Level C where groups of students are welcome to work together.

Group Study Spaces with display equipment

Several spaces are equipped with large screen displays so that groups can plug in one of their laptops and work on a project together. Two group work booths with large-screen displays are located in the Academic Commons on Level C. LC 205 also has a large-screen digitial display, and LC 212 has a digital projector. Users can request use of these spaces at the Reserve desk. Note: users much provide their own laptops, but the connector cables are already installed (Mac users: ask at Reserve for the special Mac cable).

Study Carrels

There are many public study carrels and tables throughout the Library.  The Library also offers a limited number of day carrels to any Drew student for private study; day carrels can be checked out at the Circulation/Reserve counter.  Assigned carrels and lockers are  allotted to qualifying students and faculty engaged in extensive Library-based research; applications are available at the Circulation Counter.  Refer to Eligibility Guidelines for Carrels, Lockers and Group Study and to Policies and Procedures for Study Carrels and Lockers for more information.
