Each floor of the Briscoe Library has a designated purpose and a corresponding noise level. Library users are asked to be respectful of their colleagues, and adhere to these designations, and self-monitor the noise level. Library staff do not shush users.
The Briscoe Library has individual and group study rooms on all floors of the library. These rooms provide both quiet study and group collaboration space and are important to the educational mission of the university. Study room availability is displayed on a monitor on the 3rd floor near the library entrance which looks like this:
Study rooms may only be occupied by UT Health students, faculty, residents, and staff
All occupants must wear their ID badges.
A group consists of two (2) or more people
Reservations are made for one time room use only. Recurring classes, meetings, or events should reserved through University Scheduling.
The library reserves the right to refuse to reserve a room for any group or individual who abuses the facilities or policies.
Group study rooms are always in demand, so a reservation is forfeited if
The group does not show up within 15 minutes of start time
Only one person is in the room for more than 15 minutes
The room is empty for more than 15 minutes any time after the reservation start time.
Groups are highly encouraged to reserve a room because non-reserved rooms are open for anyone to use. If a room is occupied by someone else, a group with a reservation should politely ask the person to give up the room.
Persons using the library study rooms are cautioned not to leave personal items unattended in the study rooms or anywhere else in the library. The library staff are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
