How Do I Find Study Space in the Library?

We offer varied study space throughout the building: individual, group, and quiet.  Carrels for quiet study space are located surrounding the book stacks on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Library and that area is designated with yellow "Quiet Zone" signs.

Portable white boards are available on all three floors of the Library for use by study groups in appropriate study areas. Markers and erasers are available to borrow at the Checkout Desk.

The following rooms are available for individual or group study. They may be reserved whenever the Library is open for group study according to the procedures specified for each room. These rooms are not available to be scheduled as classrooms for ongoing course instruction. Study room reservations are available only to currently registered students, staff, and faculty of Humboldt State University.
