The Learning Commons Offers a Variety of Resources and Services

If you haven’t visited our new Learning Commons yet – and even if you have – you might not be aware of all of the resources and services the Commons provides. In addition to our newly renovated Ask A Librarian desk, (where librarians provide help in finding information almost every hour the Library is open) there is also a new IT desk that can assist with questions about wireless access and other connectivity issues. Our Learning Commons Technology Office provides assistance to those wishing to check out iPads and laptops for use within and outside of the Library. Eleven new group study rooms within the Commons enable students to collaborate many hours of the day. These rooms are busy! Group study rooms can be reserved up to two weeks in advance through LibCal our online reservation system on the Library’s homepage. (Many more group study rooms are available on the upper floors of the Library and can be reserved online as well.) Students, staff and faculty will find access to both PC and Apple desktop computing as well as to wireless printing. Color printing is available also. And, if you need to charge any of your devices, the Commons offers many charging stations which can be useful to know about especially between classes. Of course, as many members of our campus community have already found, you can always pick up a cup of coffee or snack at the Freudian Sip coffeehouse in our lobby. We will continue to add new features to all of these resources and services. Feel free to check back for updates and for more information please see the Learning Commons video below.

Reserve a Study Room online!

We are so excited about launching a new service this fall for all our CSUN students. We’ve heard all your comments and concerns about our individual and group study rooms, and are happy to report that starting this Fall, CSUN students will be able to reserve them online, up to two weeks in advance. In fact, study rooms MUST now be reserved online.  You can reserve a room using your computer, tablet, or smart phone, but just make sure that you use your CSUN email address when reserving the room. This short video explains how it works.

 

 

If you have any questions about this new system, please go to the Guest Services Checkout Desk in the lobby or try it yourself directly at http://csun.libcal.com/.

Reserve Away!
