Library Training Room


Room 2189 Valley Life Sciences Building is the Bioscience and Natural Resources Library Training Room. Reservation priority is given to Library instruction sessions that focus on subject areas of the Division of Biology and the College of Natural Resources. Other UCB Library and Division of Biology / College of Natural Resources groups may request use of the room after Bioscience Library instructional needs are met. Room 2189 is not available for regular class scheduling.

ELIGIBILITY: Room 2189 may be used only for Library-related or University-related events. Use is restricted to the authorized event only and only for the date and time approved. The Training Room Instructor must be Library staff or a University instructor and must be present to monitor the room’s use.

RESERVATIONS: Reservation requests to use Room 2189 should be made in advance through the Bioscience and Natural Resources Librarians. Please provide the name, address, phone number, and affiliation of the Instructor, the official name of the group, purpose, and anticipated audience size. Complete the reservation form and submit it online. You will be contacted regarding approval of your request. Contact information is on the reservation form.

During heavy instruction periods (e.g., early- to mid-semester), we may need to limit how far in advance reservations can be made. Although we wish to be accommodating, Library instruction has priority.
