In LibCal (the Library's room booking system), select your desired date, room, and time. Available time slots are displayed in green, while unavailable time slots are displayed in red.
First, pick a date. You can book a room up to 21 days in advance. To pick a date, either jump directly to a date with the calendar pop-up, switch the weekly view, or scroll through the week's days (Image 3).

Once you have selected a date, find an available room and time. For more information about a room, click the blue "Info" button to the left of the room name.
Please note: The Assistive Technology Study Room is open to all students, but please consider using another available study room if you or other group members will not be using assistive technology or do not have accessibility needs.
Bookings default to 90 minutes, but can be booked in 30-minute increments up to 180 minutes. First select a start time by clicking on a green box. Then adjust the length of the booking by clicking the dropdown menu in the room details (Image 4).
