How to Reserve A Study Room

  1. Patrons may place room reservations online at: 
    http://sherman.library.nova.edu/rooms
  2. Reservation allowance:
    1. A room can be reserved for a specified 2 hour period online.
    2. A patron may make no more than 2 reservations per day.
    3. Rooms will be available two weeks subsequent to the current date.
    4. A reservation may be canceled by following the same steps as reserving a room.
    5. A canceled reservation does not count toward a patron’s 2 reservations per day limit.
  3. Patrons with reservations must arrive no later than 15 minutes after the start of the reserved time. After 15 minutes, the reservation is then forfeited and becomes available for online reservation.
  4. In the event that a study room becomes unavailable (i.e., damage, events, etc.), the Alvin Sherman Library reserves the right to cancel all future reservations for that room. No new reservations will be taken for the specific study room until it becomes available.
  5. Group Technology Room 3079 can ONLY be reserved and used by patrons over the age of 18. NO food or drink is allowed in this room.
  6. During checkout of a reserved room:
    1. When picking up the room key, the user that placed the reservation must check out the room with the use of a valid NSU ID or NSU Library Card. If the reserving patron does not have an NSU ID or NSU Library Card, s/he may show a valid ID to allow another member from the group to check out the study room.
    2. The group must meet any room size criteria. 

Walk-In Reservations
