Considerations for Use of Library Space

Library Space Events: Considerations for Use
If the event is outside the Library’s normal hours:

·      Has your team arranged for Campus Police to unlock the building?
·      Is a Library Team staff member going to be present to ensure that floor and elevator doors are unlocked for your attendees?
·      Has your team arranged for the building to be closed after the event by Campus Police or Campus Logistics?
For all events:
·     Has your team arranged to have the furniture moved for your event?     

·     If needed, has the space been requested to be marked as reserved for the event?
·      Do any supplies need secure storage?
·      Is there any special preparation required, e.g. for food or beverage service?
·      Has your team arranged for seating and table accommodations prior to the event?
·      Has your team tested any technology needed for broadcasting or recording the event?
        Please test your tech the week before an event to ensure smooth operation.
·      Is there any advertising needed to promote the event?
·      Any special considerations?

The Performance Area is constructed to host cultural events such as poetry readings, musical performances, one-act plays, and certain department events. Please note:

Any reconfiguration of tables and chairs outside of the Performance Area should be scheduled directly with Facilities.
