YourSpace @ the Library
Waggoner Library is happy to be your place for studying, research, and getting away. There are several different spaces you might find quite comfortable when trying to write that paper, read that book, or finish that assignment. Not only that, our friendly staff invites you to view the library as a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of student life. Read a book for pleasure (gasp!) from our leisure collection, play a game with friends, or bring your laptop and watch a movie.
Food & Drink Policy
The staff doesn’t want our students to become parched during their rigorous study time. Drinks are permitted in the library as long as they have a lid. However, please do not have drinks around the computers. Food is not permitted in the library, except for lobby on the lower level outside Quick Lecture Hall. Drink vending machines are also available by Quick Lecture Hall.
The library is trying to stay ahead of the times with our technology. There are currently three computer labs located in the library. One of these labs is for public use on the main level located beside the reference desk. The other two labs are reserved for use by the Academic Support Center and for library instruction classes. There are also several computers located around the library for searching our online catalog.
We also have a collection of Macintosh computers and media development PC’s in the Instructional Resource Center. And for students who need a bit more freedom, laptops are available to be checked out from the circulation desk for use in the library. All of these computers are reserved for student use and are “first-come, first-serve.”
To supplement our technological needs, all of Waggoner Library is supported by the Trevecca Unplugged wireless network. If your laptop still needs a physical LAN connection, there are numerous connections in all the study areas. Power plugs are also available to keep your laptops or other devices powered.
Study rooms are the perfect place for private or group study. A total of 19 study rooms are available throughout the library and none of them require reservations. There are 11 rooms available to all students for general use. These rooms are “first-come, first-serve” and are available to groups or individuals. There are 3 media study rooms available in the IRC for assignments related to music, movies, or other media. And there are 5 doctoral study rooms which are only available to doctoral students conducting research. These doctoral study rooms remain locked; keys can be checked out at the circulation desk.
Other Study Areas
In addition to our study rooms, there are other various study areas around the library. On the main level, read in one of the chairs or study at one of the tables in our rotunda with a magnificent view. There are also study carrels available to provide greater focus and privacy. Spacious tables, comfortable chairs, and individual carrels are available on all levels of the library. Don’t forget about the lobby outside Quick Lecture Hall as a quiet place to study.
