OC Libraries' Policies

HL 127

HL 127 is a classroom in the Haselwood Library that consists of 32 internet-connected computers and a teaching workstation.  The room was designed, built, and outfitted primarily for information literacy (IL) instruction, and secondarily as an open-access computer laboratory.

IL workshops delivered by library faculty have priority over all other uses of the classroom.  

 When not in use for IL instruction, the room serves as an open-access computing laboratory. Open laboratory users are obliged to observe OC’s “Rules & Policies” regarding acceptable behavior.   

IL instruction and open computer access constitute the intended uses of the room.

HL127 is not available to be reserved for study hall, alternative classroom, administration of exams, or multi-day training sessions.

Study Rooms and Contemplative Space

Study Rooms

  • Rooms may be reserved by students who need a quiet study space, who are seeking to work with others in team study efforts, or who are meeting with tutors.  For-profit business is prohibited.
  • Students may opt to share the room with others by using signs provided for that purpose. 
  • Five of the study rooms may only be reserved by groups;  001, 004, 008, 009, and 013. If unreserved, individuals may use the space.
