Faculty and doctorate students can check out 90-day research rooms
Research study rooms are available for a 90-day loan period to all faculty and doctorate students who are within 6 months of preparing for or have completed their oral exams.
Doctoral students must present a letter on OSU letterhead (example) from their department advisor confirming their scheduled oral exam or completion to qualify for a study room. The letter will be accepted at Circulation. The rooms may be shared by two patrons, if requested. Once the qualified student or Faculty member has received notification that a study room is available, the keycard may be picked up at Circulation.
Each research study room is equipped with a table, chair, shelves and a cork board. Wireless access is available in all rooms.
Rooms are in high demand, so renewal is based on availability.
The security of your belongings is not guaranteed, even in a locked room. The library is not responsible for personal belongings left in a research room.
For safety, electrical appliances are not allowed in the room.
Please check out all library materials that will be kept in the room.
Keep doors clear of any covering. Please don’t put anything on the wall that creates a hole or leaves residue. Damage charges will apply if necessary.
To ensure compliance with these policies, rooms will be inspected once a term. If violations are severe, you may be asked to give up the room.
