Faculty carrels are available in two locations: ODY Library has 9 double occupancy and 17 single spaces; and Launders Science Library in Madill Hall has 3 double occupancy spaces.
The office of the Director of Libraries assigns spaces to applicants engaged in scholarly activity three times a year: Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.
Assignments are made on the basis of information provided on the form that is mailed to each faculty member at the beginning of each semester and weighed in terms of:
- The location of collection most relevant to one's research
- The purpose for which the study is needed
- The length of time one has previously been assigned a study. (Evidence of use will also be considered when re-applying)
