To create an environment that meets the study and work needs of our campus community, we have separated the library into designated areas:
The first floor of the library has been designated as an Open Study Area.
The second floor of the library has been designated as a Quiet Study Area.
When using the Quiet Study Area, you are encouraged to be as quiet as possible while you work. Please respect others using the designated area by keeping unnecessary noise to a minimum. If you need to have a conversation or play audio or video material during your study time, please do so in closed study rooms, use headphones, or move to other places not designated as a Quiet Study Area.
Students not adhering to Quiet Study Area regulations will be asked to lower their voice or to relocate to the first floor.
If you need assistance with using or accessing a study room, inquire for help from a librarian at the Research Information Desk.
Study areas are on the first floor in the reference area, the periodicals area, and against the back wall. Additional individual study areas (carrels) are available throughout the 2nd floor.
Individual Study Rooms and Carrels
Eleven individual study rooms (1-2 people) and carrels are available on the second floor.
Group Study Rooms
Group study rooms (3 - 6 people) are on the first and second floors of the building. All group study rooms have whiteboards and computers. Markers and erasers are available and can be requested at the Circulation Services Desk and the Administrative Office (Room 200).
Study Room Use
Each student must present a current valid PGCC photo ID to enter all study rooms.
No other photo ID will be accepted.
Study Room Rules
Anyone occupying rooms will be held accountable for adhering to these rules. Those violating the rules will be restricted from future use. Campus police will be called for repeat offenders.
