Room Reservation in the Furman Libraries:

Guidelines for Reserving Rooms

The James B. Duke Library, Maxwell Music Library, and  Sanders Science Library have rooms that may be scheduled for special events, meetings, or classes. Any scheduled use of these rooms must comply with the following guidelines:

  1. Only groups affiliated with Furman University can reserve rooms in the Furman University Libraries.

  2. Rooms must be reserved during hours that the Libraries are open.

  3. Students cannot reserve rooms for personal study or group study use. Students needing group study space may reserve a group study room.

  4. All users of the rooms are expected to preserve the space in good order and condition. This includes cleaning up after their event, returning the space to its original condition, and making sure trash and recycling are in the proper receptacles within 24 hours of the event.

  5. The budget unit head of the department reserving the room assumes responsibility for accidents. This also means filing Accidental Injury Reports with Public Safety.

  6. All parking and traffic regulations must be followed.
