A student just came in and asked to sign up the classroom so he could use the smartboard to practice a presentation. We do not loan the classroom out like seminar room A because if any problems occur, library instruction will have to come to a screeching halt. We have nowhere else to teach -- ours is the only classroom we have access to.
Just to clarify, students are NOT allowed to check out the classroom. Instructors aren't either. As a rule, it's just for library related courses and should always be signed out with me. Sometimes I let people in on a case by case basis, but I seldom let students in there on their own. It's not a lab and it's not a seminar room.
