Use of the Instruction Facilities

Instruction Facilities operated by the Miami University Libraries are for the use of librarians and library staff members for:

  • Credit courses taught by librarians
  • Course-related library instruction
  • Workshops taught by library staff
  • Library staff training
  • Library-sponsored programming and outreach

Instruction Facilities are generally not to be used as a general meeting or conference room. If a proposed session does not fall under one of the criteria above, permission must be granted by the Assistant Dean for Instruction and Emerging Technologies (santucle@miamioh.edu) or theHead of the Libraries’ Instruction Cluster, Lindsay Miller (mille234@miamioh.edu)

Some facilities may be open as walk-in computing facilities for individual users when classes are not scheduled or may be available as study rooms using the study room scheduler.
