Stauffer Library at Queen’s University has begun its phased reopening with 150 individual, bookable seats available to students on a first come, first serve basis.
According to the University’s library website, seats are bookable in 4-hour timeslots and students may make up to two bookings per day, with a maximum of 32 hours per calendar month.
Bookable timeslots are made available one week in advance. Any cancelations must be made at least one hour prior to the booked timeslot or the hours will count towards the student’s monthly allotment.
Students are required to complete a “wellness check” upon entrance and may bring water bottles, but no other food or drink. Face coverings are mandatory and physical distancing guidelines are enforced.
Students are expected to bring their own devices, as library equipment including computers, printers, and scanners are unavailable for use until further notice. Seating arrangements are fixed and furniture may not be moved.
Students may only occupy their booked seat and will be provided with cleaning supplies to wipe down their study space before and after use. Health and safety protocols are emailed to students upon successful booking.
