Services spotlight: study rooms

McGoogan Library of Medicine has 16 study rooms available to students, faculty and staff of UNMC and Nebraska Medicine. Reservation for study rooms can be made online. A UNMC or Nebraska Medicine email address is required. Please note that the first time you reserve a room, you must verify your email address through a link sent to that address. The email will come from Evanced Solutions.

Study rooms may be reserved for up to 4 hours at a time with 1 renewal (unless the room is reserved by another person or group). You may have two active reservations within a 24-hour period. Date and time of reservation must pass before you can make another reservation.  Reservations may be made up to 2 weeks in advance.

Wi-fi is available in all of the rooms. Markers, erasers and white boards are available in each room. Additional markers and erasers are available at the AskUs Desk.

The study rooms are keyless; you are advised not to leave personal items unattended anywhere in the library. Rooms are not soundproof and are located on a quiet floor.

Library training room now available

The McGoogan Library of Medicine has a new room available for use by faculty, staff and students.  The new Wilson Training Room (WH 8011) is available for meetings including videoconferences, training sessions, webinars and other use as needed.

Coming soon: reserve a study room

On March 28, 2016, students, staff and faculty of UNMC and Nebraska Medicine can reserve study rooms just by using their official email address and a smartphone or computer. Simply go to our reservation system (to be added to the library’s home page) or scan the QR Code posted next to each room’s door, and reserve the study room for one to four hours on whatever day you choose. Size and room features are highlighted in the system to help you choose a room. Once this system is live, there will no longer be the need to check out study room keys. Simply go to the room for the duration of your reservation.

During the week of March 21st there will be renovation on the rooms as the library gets ready for the new system. We regret any inconvenience.

Study room work this weekend, March 12-13

The library’s study rooms will be frosted – allowing for more privacy. The work will take place on Saturday, March 12 and Sunday, March 13. Please be advised, there will be noise due to the work.  Although unoccupied rooms will be completed first, students may be asked to vacate a room in order to complete all work. We will do our best to accommodate everyone’s needs.
