Reservations are limited to current ORU students and faculty.
Personal items in any room that has been vacated for more than 20 minutes or during a reserved time will be taken to lost and found.
If you would like to clean/sanitize the room (keyboards, mouse, desktop, etc) upon your arrival and when you leave, you can ask at the Library Services desk for cleaning supplies.
For the Digital Nests, if the group does not show within 15 minutes of the reserved time, the room is forfeited for the entire time. If a person or group is occupying a room when a reservation time begins, that person/group must vacate the room. Rooms not reserved are available on a walk-in basis to groups or individuals, but must be vacated if a reservation is made.
Digital Nests are spaces available for student walk-in use, unless the space has been reserved. Reserve a Digital Nest in the Library for your group of three or more to meet and collaborate on research or academic/course-related projects.
Faculty/ AVR Room is primarily dedicated to use by current or retired ORU faculty, and students using education-type virtual reality (VR) programs, such as 3D Organon VR and Tilt Brush. Faculty and students may, however, use the room on the spur of the moment provided they check first at the Library Service desk to make sure the room is free. The room may be reserved for 1) faculty, 2) a student(s) using VR for a class or assignment, or 3) a group of 3-5 students for group study. Priority is given to faculty use over student use. The room is equipped with one HTC Vive VR station, Steam Content library, Zoom, Kaltura, Adobe Creative Suite, and more. For VR use, check out the controllers at the Library Service desk. The librarian at the Service desk will unlock the room for you.

Individual Rooms 207 & 208 may be reserved by any individual student or groups of 2. These two spaces are on the second floor in the hall to the right of the elevator (across from the bathrooms).
The Presentation Studio is a green screen space equipped with an easy-to-use state-of-the-art automated audio/video recording system designed for students and faculty to use to create lessons, professional recordings, practice presentations, dramatic scenes, or interview. The room includes remote camera management with a user-friendly interface and omnidirectional lighting setup (for an even cast) to avoid shadows. The space may be reserved by 1) students and faculty for recording or 2) a group of 5-8 students for group study. Priority is given to recording use over group study use. For use assistance or instruction on the Studio features, contact Professor Myra Bloom or Professor Dan Eller. The librarian at the Service desk will unlock the room for you.
