  2. Priority is first given to student testing. Schedules are posted on the doors to indicate testing reservations.
  3. Groups have priority over individuals.
  4. Please leave the room clean and leave the furniture in the room.

Several of the rooms are equipped with dry erase boards.  Markers and erasers are available at the circulation desk.   Plasma screens are available in many of the rooms for use in group presentations, collaborations, etc.  Call the I.T.
