Description and Use of Faculty Studies

Purpose

The faculty studies located on Trexler Library's C Level are intended to support professional study and writing. Activities such as consulting, advising, and routine classroom preparations are not considered appropriate use of faculty studies.

Description

Each study is approximately 80 square feet (8' x 10') and has a telephone for local calls only. The desk unit includes a reference shelf, three drawers, and a task light. Other furnishings include an adjustable armchair on casters and a Muhlenberg armchair. Faculty may also place a request for a computer through OIT.

Faculty may request a study for a single semester, summer session, a full academic year, or for an entire calendar year.

Note: Any additional faculty studies which are not assigned during a given period may also be available for use on a short-term basis. Inquiries concerning availability of short-term use should be requested through the Library Director.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Near the end of each semester, the Library Director will send an announcement requesting that interested faculty submit their applications.

Should the number of eligible applicants exceed the number of studies, the Library Committee may request that faculty share a study.
