Library Instruction Labs and Use Policy

Available Library Instruction Labs

Library Instruction Labs may be reserved in both Anschutz and Watson Libraries, with Library and technology based classes, workshops, or seminars having priority as described below. For more information, please consult the KU Libraries Instruction Room Use Policy (pdf). For questions, contact liblabreserve@ku.edu.

Students may reserve a group study space in the Libraries.

Priority Activities

Use of the Library Instruction Labs is scheduled each semester according to priority of use (see list below).  When a Library Instruction Lab is needed for library, technology, or course-related instruction, those who have reserved a lab for other activities as highlighted in 3-6 on the list, may be asked to relocate elsewhere, with no fewer than seven days notice.

  1. Library and technology based classes, workshops, or seminars
  2. KU course-related library instruction sessions taught by or with a librarian or technology trainer
  3. Library staff instruction, training and development programs or workshops
  4. Other college and university course-related instruction sessions focused on library resources and coordinated through the KU Libraries Instruction Program
  5. University of Kansas short courses, institutes, workshops and seminars focused on use of our resources and taught by or with other KU faculty
  6. Other groups when appropriate

Non-Library Requests
As library instruction requests cannot be predicted, non-library events, classes, or sessions are not normally scheduled in these rooms.  Other requests for the use of these rooms from KU faculty and staff will be accommodated when possible, but will not be scheduled more than seven days before an event during the semester.

Scheduling the Anschutz Instruction Center, Clark Instruction Center, and Watson 419

  • These instructions indicate how to schedule an event on the calendar and how to modify or delete an event. This video tutorial covers the process of placing a reservation. Please check availability of room before saving.
  • NOTE on Lead setup time/ Lag breakdown time: Please try to avoid scheduling setup and breakdown times. If you need to test software, identify another time when the lab is available. If it is necessary to schedule setup and breakdown times, end the session on the hour or half-hour.
