The Great Room on the 3rd floor has been designated as a reading room for the library during regular library hours. There are 10 group study rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors. Groups have priority over individuals, and groups of TAMIU students and employees have priority over other groups in the study rooms. Groups may also use the study tables on the 2nd and 3rd floors, but the 4th floor has been designated as a library quiet area for individual study.
You can bring food and drink in the library and study rooms, however, we ask you follow these guidelines:
Drinks in covered and durable containers (e.g. plastic travel mugs, Starbucks cups, capped bottles).
Small snack food items (e.g. chips, energy bars, candy or food items in small containers).
Drinks with flimsy or no lids. *
Whole meals or food deliveries (e.g. pizza).
Messy or strong smelling foods (e.g. pizza, fried foods, pungent dishes, etc.). Strong smelling foods can be a distraction to others in the same way loud talking or music can be a distraction.
If you snack, clean your study space. Report major spills to the Circulation Desk on the first floor.
If you find another patron’s food too aromatic or offensive, contact the Circulation Staff for assistance.
* No alcoholic beverages or tobacco products.
Photocopy machines are located on the 1st floor of the library. Copies cost $.10 per page. Two machines accept cash and print cards, the other two are cash only. The print card machine is located on the 1st floor across from the Circulation Desk. The microform reader-printers in the Microforms Area accept dimes and print cards.
