The Library has a variety of spaces for study including tables, individual study carrels, group study rooms and quiet study space. While talking, headphones and group work in the library are fine, please be mindful of your noise level. We really prefer not to "shush" people.
The Library has 3 rooms available to Delta College students to use as group study, online class, presentation practice, virtual job interview space, etc. Rooms A136, A137 and A138 are located at the back of the library and are available by reservation.
A135 is designated as the silent zone when it is not being used for class instruction. Study areas in the library "stack"/book areas are generally the quietest areas for study.
The open computer lab is available during library hours. The Open Lab houses 86 PC and 17 Mac computers, four print kiosks that allow for networked or wireless printing, scanners and specialized software.
The area outside of A-125 is designated the pop-up classroom. It has six tables, twenty-four chairs, and a small whiteboard. It is partially separated from the open computer area by a half wall. Classes can use it for group work or to meet with their instructor; students can also bring their own devices. It does not have any computers.It can be reserved by faculty for use with classes. When the space is not reserved it can be used as an open study area.
Room A135 is the Library Instruction room. It is available for instructors to schedule library orientations and instructions for their classes. Online forms are available for Faculty to request instruction. When the room is not in use for library instruction it is available for silent study.
Restrooms and a drinking fountain with a bottle filler are located at the front of the library.
