University Libraries fall 2016 classroom update

It’s hard to believe, but the fall 2016 semester starts one week from today! As students dive back into their studies, classes will begin to visit the library for information literacy workshops. The schedules for the nine classrooms in Pattee and Paterno Libraries and the three classrooms in our branch libraries are already starting to fill up, especially since starting this semester, the Paterno 302 and Davey 211 classrooms have converted to General Purpose Classrooms (GPC). GPCs can be scheduled for all sorts of classes, including English 15 classes, so we will be welcoming many students into Paterno and Davey for a different type of learning experience than our library classrooms have usually hosted.

Although GPCs are scheduled through the new campus space scheduler, CollegeNET, you can still view classroom schedules for all of our classrooms, including Paterno 302 and Davey 211, in UCS. The schedules are all available here:

More information about CollegeNET is available in this Library blog post from June 2016:

Basic information about all of our classrooms, including seating, technology options, and other information, is all available via our classroom web page.

For questions about our classrooms, their capabilities, and the future of our classrooms, don’t hesitate to contact Rebecca Miller (email link). For questions about the new space scheduler on campus, CollegeNET, touch base with Ann Thompson. Finally, for help with scheduling classrooms or anything else related to our classrooms, contact Rebecca Peterson at or 814-865-9257.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we work toward creating supportive learning environments for PSU faculty, staff, and students.
