Due to the pandemic, the following has been modified for the safety of all students.
The John W. Anderson Library Conference Center provides 7 study rooms:
Each study room is for current IU Northwest and current Ivy Tech students only, and they are not available to faculty, staff, or community patrons. The purpose of study rooms is to provide all students with quiet and private study space so that they made do their work quietly alone or collaboratively as a group. All study rooms remain locked unless being used. Each study room can only hold a maximum of 4 students at a time.
To use a study room, please present your student Crimson Card or Ivy Tech student ID at the circulation desk on the 1st floor. For groups of 2, 3, or 4, all students must present their Crimson Card/Ivy Tech student ID. The circulation clerk will scan your card(s) with a corresponding Study Room Key Card. Please keep the Key Card with you. When finished with the study room, please bring back the Key Card to the Circulation Desk.
Reservations for study rooms are restricted to day-by-day only. You may reserve a study room 24 hours in advance with a 15-minute late grace period. If you are late for your reservation after the 15-minute grace period, it will be terminated and given to the next student request. Reservations during Mid-Terms Week and Finals Week are prohibited.
Study rooms are only available to current IU Northwest and Ivy Tech students. This is because study space is scarce on campus. We ask students to abide by the following procedures and rules listed below. Note: the John W. Anderson Library faculty and staff reserve the right to refuse or ban any student from study rooms for any reason at any time.
All study rooms remain locked until use. Please see the circulation desk to check out a study room.
To check out a room, bring your Crimson Card or Ivy Tech ID to the circulation desk. Your card will be scanned along with a Study Room Card Key. You will hold onto the Card Key while using the study room. You must return the Card Key to discharge your time after study room usage.
1 reservation = 2 hours; 2 reservations allowed each day (4 hours)
A student may use the room for up to 2 reservations a day.
A student may use the study room for up to 2 hours with up to 3 other students.
If there is at least 1 other study room available and there is no line, a student may check out a 2nd reservation and use it for another 2 hours.
24 Hour Notice
24 hour reservations are prohibited for Midterms Week and Finals Week.
When you are using a study room, please abide by the following:
Failure to follow these rules will result in a permanent ban from using study rooms.
Are you a student and need a large room for collaborative work, study groups, using media, or just to have fun? The Student Collaborative, located in Library 130 (near the RedHawk Little Cafe), is an open large room designed for collaboration. Here is what the Student Collaborative has to offer:
Unlike study rooms, you do not need a reservation. Multiple groups are encouraged to use the room simultaneously.
If you need to reserve the room for a campus sponsored event, please contact the Circulation Desk at 219-980-6585
