McNairy Library and Learning Forum Policies

McNairy 104 Library Classroom Reservation Policy

Policy

McNairy Library welcomes members of the Millersville University community who might benefit from the unique active learning capabilities of the classroom to utilize the instructional space in room 104. We ask that reservations include specific pedagogical reasons for requesting the classroom. Requests are considered on a case by case basis. The following criteria will be considered:

Room Availability

  • Weekdays during the first and last weeks of the fall and spring semesters
  • Common hour or other low use times before 5pm
  • Summer session

*If your request does not fall within these times, consider using other rooms in the library, available University rooms using Ad Astra, or rooms in the SMC

Intended Use

Will you be utilizing technology, active learning, or group activities?

  • Laptops and/or iPads will be used
  • Group Activities/Active Learning will be used
  • Other innovative uses of room 104 are encouraged

*If you do not require the technology in 104, McNairy 118 accommodates a similar number of students.

Requests

Requests will be considered based on the above criteria and should be submitted at least one week ahead (Three weeks ahead for the first week of the semester). Please submit your request through our Library Classroom Reservation Request Form. If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Gold at melissa.gold@millersville.edu.

About the Space

The McNairy Library & Learning Forum Classroom supports active learning through a democratic instructional space. Although the two sides of the classroom (104A and 104B) can operate as separate instructional spaces, the room is typically left open and connected unless honoring a specific request. At its fullest capacity, the room can support up to 65 students, but is best utilized for groups of 40 or less. 

104A (Nearest the Alumni Reading Room):
  • 36 moveable seats
  • 18 small moveable tables (can be reconfigured into larger working spaces)
  • 30 PC Laptops
  • 1 overhead projector
  • 3 large monitors with Mac minis
104B (Nearest Starbucks):
  • 32 moveable seats
  • 12 small tables (can be reconfigured into larger working spaces)
  • 30 iPads
  • Portable Projector
  • 2 large monitors with Mac minis

------

Does your request fall within the middle of the semester? McNairy librarians lead information literacy instruction sessions for more than 3,500 students each year! To meet the needs of our faculty and students, we reserve the library classroom from the 2nd to 10th weeks of each semester. If your library visit falls within these weeks, we invite you to utilize one of our additional reservable spaces
