Morrison Library Reservation Request Form

Content section: 

The Morrison Library’s primary role is as a library space and collection. Departments directly affiliated with Berkeley may request use of the Morrison Library for a fee for events after regular public service hours, listed on the Morrison Library homepage

Individuals and groups hosted by a department may also request use of the Morrison, if the department is taking responsibility as the host. Preference is given to events open to the campus community and the public. Requests may be denied for reasons such as timing in the academic year, scope of event, security concerns, and facilities limitations.

The fee covers the use of the room and will be confirmed before final agreement with both parties. Additional fees charged by other groups providing related services are the responsibility of the event planner.  Fees are subject to change. The Morrison Library can be closed one hour before the event for setup. Events must be finished by the Doe Library closing hour.

Event Information
Note: The Morrison may be closed as early as 4:00pm for set up. Clean up should be planned for up to one hour after the event end time, and must be completed by 9:00pm at the latest.
The UCPD Alcohol Form must be received by the Library, approved by the Library, faxed to UCPD and approval received by the UL office one week before the event takes place.
A.V. equipment: The Morrison Library does not provide additional A.V. (laptop, additional microphones or speakers). You can rent AV equipment through Educational Technical Services (ETS) on campus if you need additional items. Linen: If linen is sullied or damaged, host will be responsible for cleaning or replacement.

By submitting this form, I confirm that I have read and agree to the Conditions and Policies for Use and, if the request is approved, will deliver the rental fees via chart string or by check payable to the UC Regents to the University Librarian Office at least one week prior to the date of the event.
