The Library provides research study rooms which may be assigned to individual users. Generally, desks in these rooms are shared because of the high level of demand.
Iowa State University faculty members, professional/scientific staff members, visiting scholars, and graduate students are eligible to apply for a research study. Exceptions to these categories are made at the discretion of the Associate Dean for Research & Access. Applications may be obtained from Stacks Management staff in Room 103 Parks Library, by phone ((515) 294-0444), or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. If possible, applications should be made in advance of the need because there is usually a waiting list for these rooms.
Research study rooms are designed for research and other scholarly activities that require extensive use of library materials. Consequently, assignments must be limited to those individuals actively engaged in projects that require concentrated use of Parks Library’s materials. These rooms are not intended for general office purposes and are to be used only by those individuals assigned to them. To insure maximum use of limited facilities, research study rooms are normally assigned for periods not to exceed one semester. Renewal requests are considered on the basis of availability and need. The Library reserves the right to reassign study rooms that are not being used regularly.
Essential furniture is provided for each study, and additional furniture may not be added without authorization. The Library is not responsible for personal property left in these rooms. All Library rules and regulations apply to these rooms. No smoking, use of tobacco products, or consumption of food is allowed, although beverages are permitted in covered, spill-proof containers.
Library materials selected for use in these studies should first be checked out at the Circulation Desk. Library materials not checked out must be returned daily for reshelving. Library staff perform periodic checks of all assigned studies to ensure library materials are properly checked out.
At the end of the assigned period, the key or keys issued for each study room must be returned promptly to Stacks Management staff, 103 Library, or the user will be billed.
