Currently, there isn’t much information about the different rooms in the tool itself, so IT is working with us to get images of each room alongside the name. In the meantime, our Room landing page has descriptions and photos of all the rooms in Mary I. (We’ll be adding Steelcase later.) We’re hoping that IT will have updated the online app by early next week, and then we’ll do some all-out promotion for it. Reserving rooms online is one of the most commonly asked questions at the service desk, according to LibStats, and in chat, from the transcripts I’ve read.

In the meantime, feel free to direct students there!
