Online Reservation for Library Seating and Equipment

NYSID Library will be open for Fall 2020. To comply with health and safety standards, use of seating and equipment will require a reservation.

What is Available to Reserve?

  • Reading/study tables: A maximum of three users (each at a designated table and seat) will be accommodated for one-hour reserved time slots. Surfaces will be sanitized by library staff between users.
  • Computer workstations: A maximum of two users may use designated public workstations for one-hour reserved time slots at any one time. Surfaces will be sanitized by library staff between users.
  • Scanners: A maximum of one user may reserve a scanner for increments of up to 30 minutes at a time. Surfaces will be sanitized by library staff between users.

When Can I Make a Reservation?
Reading/study tables and computer workstations can both be reserved for one hour time slots; scanner reservations will be for 30 minute time slots. Reservations can be made up to 7 days in advance. Each user is limited to 2 sessions per resource per day.

How do I Make a Reservation?
First, check the Library’s Reservation Calendar, to ensure your time slot is open. On the calendar, c = computer; r = reading/study table; s = scanner. Once you know when your resource is free, fill out the form below. You will receive an email verifying your reservation.

If you need a Library Use Only book in addition to the scanner or a table, put the book’s call number and citation in the More Detail field. To ensure the Librarians have time to pull your book, please make these requests at least one day in advance.

***Note: Due to cleaning regulations, you may be asked to leave 10 minutes before the end of your session, so that the workstation can be properly cleaned by Library staff before the following guest. Moreover, if you are more than 15 minutes late for your session, the reserved resource may be re-assigned to a walk-in user.***
