Library Policies and Procedures

Library Spaces

Classroom Overview

Rosenthal Library's classrooms are primarily used for library instruction. At other times, they can be reserved for meetings and events. 

Classrooms with Student Computers

Rooms 101A, 225, and 227 have laptops for each student.

Other Classrooms

Rooms 223, 300i (also known as the Tanenbaum Room), and 444 each have projectors and computers for the presenter, but no student workstations. 

How to Reserve 

While most classrooms on campus are scheduled by the Registrar, Library classrooms are scheduled through Instructional Services.

Rooms can be reserved online. You can also call us at 718.997.3747, visit the office in person, or email us: 

We are located in Rosenthal 339, across from the Borrowing Desk. Regular hours are Monday-Friday, 9 AM-3:45 PM.


The following uses have priority:

  • The Library's credit courses, including courses cross-listed with another department
  • Library instruction to QC undergraduate and graduate courses, arranged through Instructional Services
  • Library workshops for students and faculty
  • Library staff and faculty training
  • Queens College credit courses not offered by the Library
  • Townsend Harris high school classes
  • Classes or workshops for external groups, arranged through Instructional Services
  • Meetings among Library faculty and staff
  • Researchers using specialized library materials

Any other groups wishing to meet in the library should contact the Events Office to schedule the President's Conference Rooms.

The Tanenbaum Room, 300i, was designed and built with archives and special collections in mind. Therefore, courses and workshops offered as part of the Library's Archives and Special Collections program, or for the Certificate in Archives and Preservation of Cultural Materials, will be given preference in that room.

Once credit courses have been scheduled for a room, they may not be pre-empted by any other event.

QC Faculty Room Use Policy

Queens College academic courses requiring use of a computer classroom 1–2 times in a semester may schedule a class, provided the class does not conflict with other scheduled events. Contact the Library's Instructional Services Office or check the calendar for room availability. Such classes should be scheduled no more than one week in advance.

Besides Archives-related courses in 300i, as described above, semester-long classes will be scheduled in Library classrooms only at the Library's discretion and on a very limited basis, not as a substitute for Registrar-assigned class space. Any hybrid classes, or other classes with irregular schedules, must provide their exact meeting dates before the room is scheduled.

Scheduled rooms will be recorded in the calendar, and will also be confirmed by email. The email will provide additional documentation that the room was scheduled.
