Booking Study Rooms

Booking study rooms in Bierce Library will soon be getting an upgrade!

We are initiating a LibCal study room booking pilot on June 8, 2015. The purpose of this pilot is to move all student booking of Bierce Library study rooms from the Sierra platform to the LibCal platform. We believe the LibCal platform will be more user-friendly and require less staff time to manage.

Paul, Stephanie, and the Access Department will be testing the new LibCal system during intersession, beginning May 11 and concluding June 5. During this time period, no booking of Bierce Library study rooms will be available to students. The Access folks will put a sign on each study room door noting that a new system will begin in June and that all study rooms are first come, first serve until June 8, 2015. The Bierce Library study room records in the catalog have been suppressed so that students cannot place a booking through Sierra. Paul has updated our webpages.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask Melanie, Stephanie or Paul.

Problem with booking study rooms in UAL Catalog

Study room booking is not quite working right in the UAL Catalog.

A title search for study room causes the Request button to display (all three browsers). in the search results list. If you click on the link to the item record, the Book It button displays and the study room can be booked.
A keyword search for study room  causes the Request button to briefly display, then the Book It button appears and the study room can be booked (all three browsers).

Direct users to a keyword search or have users click on the record link to book a study room until this problem is resolved.
