Faculty and Staff:
Priority use of the Collaboration Center is for University of Oregon instructors, academic support providers, and student services professionals conducting meetings with students one-on-one or in groups. The room may be reserved in advance for groups of ten or more but is otherwise open on a drop-in basis. To avoid conflict with reserved uses, check the daily schedule posted at the door before beginning your session. In order to preserve flexibility for ad-hoc and drop-in sessions, the Collaboration Center is not generally available for regular meetings of term-length courses. If you are interested in having a librarian participate in your Collaboration Center session, contact a subject specialist associated with your area of study. For general or introductory sessions, contact Barbara Jenkins, Director, Library Instruction and Campus Partnerships (6-1925).
Subject to availability, individual students or study groups may use the Collaboration Center on a drop-in basis, with the understanding that the space needs to be shared with other drop-in users. To avoid conflict with reserved uses, check the daily schedule posted at the door before beginning your session. If your study group needs to schedule a reserved space, please refer to the Study Rooms page
Food and Drink:
Food and drink is permitted in this area. Please keep drinks in rigid, spill-proof travel mugs or pull-top bottles, clean up any spills or crumbs, and properly dispose of all trash.
