The faculty assigned carrels are moving to the 3rd floor room overlooking Freiberger Field and Thwing Center. Newly painted, the space provides a quiet respite from campus offices and the activity of the library. Completion is expected by early fall semester, when the large study tables are removed to the general library space and faculty carrels are installed.
Update: KSL now provides five faculty carrels in a secure, shared room. Faculty members who have an assigned carrel in Lower Level 05 Room also have a key to enter the room whenever KSL is open, including during 24x7 service.
Within the secured room, there are five open standard desk carrels with desk space, bookshelf, electrical outlet, and access to WiFi. Individual lockers are available for personal belongings. Locks and keys are available specifically for these lockers and can be borrowed at the Main Service Desk. Faculty who wish to have other items in the room can bring items in as long as the items fit within the space of the assigned carrel.
This pilot program will continue through summer 2011. Modifications to the program will be considered during summer based upon the experience during the pilot. KSL does not guarantee that that the pilot will be continued indefinitely nor that the program will be expanded in the future.
All faculty who are assigned carrels will sign a statement stipulating that they understand and agree to the following:
