There are several kinds of study spaces in the library:

Group Study Spaces

The library has 3 large group study spaces:

Level C, Academic Commons Group Studies:  Two glassed in study rooms with large-screen monitors, and one white board wall apiece. 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. Note: because of the nature of the room enclosure, we request that noise be moderated while using these rooms. Note: users much provide their own laptops, but the connector cables are already installed (Mac users: ask at Reserve for the special Mac cable).

A Group Study Room ( 212, the Tipple Conference Room) 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.

The INTO classroom and the Library/Technology Classroom on Level C are available for open group study when there are no classes, workshops or programs using them. There are also large tables in the Reference area of Level C where groups of students are welcome to work together.

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.
