Room Reservations Policy and Information
The Pearson Library maintains 8 rooms for study and meeting space. Most rooms contain a collaboration table, chairs, a computer, a large screen display with laptop hookups, and a dry-erase board. The Language and Math Labs do not contain public computers or a display. Supply kits containing markers and an eraser for use on the dry-erase boards are available and may be checked out at the Circulation Desk. Other equipment, such as laptop projectors and televisions, may be requested from Media Services at (805) 493-3820 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Faculty and staff interested in using rooms for teleconferencing should consult the Circulation Desk in advance at (805) 493-3937 to confirm availability.

General Room Reservation Policies
- Rooms may be reserved for use only during the library’s regular hours (from 8:30am – 11:30pm). Please refer to current Hours of Operation for library hours and special schedules. All rooms must be vacated 15 minutes before the close of business.
- Patrons seeking to reserve a room must be in a group of two or more, be a current CLU student, faculty, or staff member, and possess a current CLU ID. Summer programming patrons may be able to place room reservations upon accommodation. Parties of one are asked to make use of the carrels located throughout the library. Reservations made by patrons who are more than 15 minutes late checking in at the Circulation Desk will be automatically cancelled and the room space will be made available to other patrons.
- All rooms may be used for a period of no longer than two hours per group per day. Back-to-back or other same-day reservations for the same group are strictly prohibited, even when made in the name of other group members. Failure to adhere to this policy will result in suspension of library privileges.
- All library patrons MUST present their current CLU ID card upon checking in to their room reservation at the library Circulation Desk. Student patrons must leave their CLU ID card at the Circulation Desk for the duration of the room reservation.
- The individual patron who reserves the room and submits his/her CLU ID card upon check-in (hereby referred to as the reservee) assumes full responsibility for the room, its contents, and the room key (if given). Any fees associated with a lost key or damage to the room will be levied against the reservee. Additionally, the reservee must be present in the room during the entire time the room is being used. If the reservee must leave the library he or she should check out of the room by visiting the Circulation Desk.
- Groups must be ready to leave at the end of their reservation. Groups may not extend a room reservation beyond 2 hours; however, they may stay in a room until another reservation has been made. When the next group arrives to use a study room, all group members must promptly leave the room in a clean and orderly condition.
Specific policies applying to each room are described below.
