Study tables, some with laptop connections, are available throughout the library. The library is divided into two types of study area, group and individual (Quiet Study Area).
There are numerous tables in the Group Study Area on the north side of the Library. If you need to work in a group and discuss what you are doing with others, please use this side of the Library. You will also find wall-mounted whiteboards, useful for group work and tutoring sessions. Whiteboard markers and erasers may be signed out at the Circulation Desk.
The south side of the Library is designated an individual quiet study area. If noise is creating a disturbance in the Quiet Study Area, notify Information Desk staff who will see if it can be alleviated. Some carrels on the Quiet Study side of the Library are equipped with power bars for laptops and mobile devices.
The Library’s computer lab is open to students and staff of the College as well as the public. Technical help is available from 8:00 to 4:00, Monday to Friday. Inquiries about the Lab can be made by phoning (204) 632-2332.
Computer workstations are available on a first-come first-serve basis. Patrons are asked to be respectful to others during busy times of the day and not monopolize computer workstations to browse social networking.
The Library Classroom is located in room CM29 of the Library, adjacent to the computer lab. The primary use of the facility is by library staff for Library Instruction sessions. When not in use for library instruction or other meetings as listed below, it is available as an extension of the computer lab.
