Library Group Study Rooms

ACC Faculty often assign group projects to their classes but sometimes, students then have difficulties finding a location to work together in a ‘clean, well lighted place’, with technology available to support your learning.

These ACC libraries have group study rooms available for currently enrolled ACC students studying together:
(At this time, the PIN library is the exception.) 

Opening in January 2014, the new Hays Campus (HYS) Library will also have one group study room.

To sign up to use a room, come to a library’s Reference Desk in person and show the librarian your ACC ID card. Slots are available from 30 minutes to 2 hours, and depending on availability, at the end of your reservation you may be able to extend the time. 

Reservations are accepted up to 7 days in advance, but be sure to arrive punctually -- if you’re more than 10 minutes late, your group forfeits the reservation! 

Use the white board or check out laptops at a Library’s Circulation Desk so group members can collaborate via Google docs, view media, review Blackboard materials, print documents, etc.  In a few study rooms you can connect your laptop to a projector or flat screen for group viewing!

The study rooms may not be used for tutoring, meetings of organizations, or for faculty to meet with students. ‘Group study’ means just that – 2 or more currently enrolled ACC students – these are not ‘individual study rooms’. Please see complete rules   about the study rooms. 

Sign-up, meet your group, and be successful with that project or ace that test! Would you like more info? Need other locations to study on your campus? Are you stuck getting started researching your topic?  Ask a librarian! We’re here to help you.
