Three Group Study Rooms Added at Bata Library

Three Group Study Rooms Added at Bata Library

Posted March 8, 2012

Three new  Group Study Rooms are ready for student use via the Library Room Booking system; find the link to "Book a Group Study Room" on the library homepage. Rooms may be booked up to a week ahead of time.

The new rooms are on the 1st (lower) floor:

  • 106.11 maximum 4 people (not lockable due to fire hose cabinet)
  • 106.10 maximum 4 people (keypad code on door - the code is posted by the door)
  • 106.1 maximum 8 people (not locked)

This brings the number of bookable study rooms to seven: five at Bata and two at Oshawa.

Book these new rooms online, then go directly to the room at the time you've booked. Since no key is required for the new rooms, there's no need to stop at the Circulation Desk. For the time being, keys are still required for rooms 309 and 207.

Using the Library Room Booking system provides consistency for the scheduling of Library spaces, enables students to plan their work and promotes accountability for the condition of the rooms. Rooms are booked using a valid Trent account username. Circulation staff also use the booking system to solve disputes and to ensure that no group is abusing the 2-hour limit.

Signs are posted on the doors.
Since these rooms are located in a Red (silent) Zone, you are asked to keep noise levels to a moderate level and close the door. The Bata Library will re-evaluate the Learning Zones designations in the near future.
