Classroom/Computer Lab Policies

Mission

The AUM Library classroom/computer lab has a dual function or purpose

It is designed as a library classroom equipped for hands-on access to current computer technology, and moreover, it is specifically adapted to library user instruction for AUM students.

It is also designed as a computer lab intended to furnish personal computers for research use by AUM students. The classroom/lab will be available for use by AUM faculty, staff, students, and current members of the AUM Alumni Association when not scheduled for instruction sessions or library administrative meetings. Anyone wishing to access the facilities must be prepared to present a current AUM ID. Anyone wishing to access the facilities must sign-in with the lab assistant and present a current AUM ID.

Principles

Priority use of the Library classroom/lab is for:

  • Library instruction sessions taught by librarians at the request of departmental faculty
  • Library/administrative meetings
  • Non-library instruction sessions/meetings at the discretion of the Library's Instruction Coordinator

Departmental faculty may arrange for individual class sessions by contacting Barbara Hightower, Dean and Library Instruction Coordinator, at 334-244-3994. Reservations for library instruction sessions are made on a first-come, first-serve basis and confirmations are sent via email by the Library Instruction Coordinator. Please note that library instruction sessions are limited to instruction in library use or research skills.

Scheduled sessions are posted:

Any professional library associations or groups whose conference, workshops or meetings fall within the AUM library mission, (e.g. Lyrasis) may be allowed to use the classroom free provided that a minimum of two AUM library staff members are allowed to attend the workshop at no cost.

Please note that the classroom/lab may not be used by non-AUM groups.
