Updated Hours and Services for the Library:
Book a seat at the library for studying:
Designated seats in the Medical Center Library are now available for individual reservation, Monday – Friday, from 9 am to 4 pm.
To ensure you will have a place to work or study, reserve a seat before you arrive. The seats are located on Levels 2R and 3 of the Medical Center Library; Level 1 remains closed. The maximum length of one reservation is 2 hours. You may make up to two reservations per day and these reservations can be made back-to-back. Once you reserve a seat, you will receive a confirmation email with a code you will use to check-in upon arrival. Bring your phone, tablet, or laptop to the library with this reservation confirmation to check in at the Entrance Lobby Desk.
Once you check in at the Entrance Lobby Desk and get your library pass, you will also need to check in at the reserved seat (table, cubicle, study room). Seats that are not claimed will be released.
