Q. Can I attend my online class at the library?
Yes. The library can be a good place to attend your classes virtually, but you'll still need to observe the noise-level classifications for each floor.
Students are free to use the library computer labs to attend remote classes (or for any other academic purpose) as long as they don’t disturb the other library patrons. If they are attending a remote class, this means wearing a headset or earbuds as the computers do not have speakers or microphones. They also do not have a webcam, so they can't be used for any class that requires students to appear on video. If the lab has other students in it trying to work quietly, students may also have to rely on the chat function of their class rather than speaking into a headset.
Students should not gather in a large group in the computer labs to attend the same class as this will be disturbing to other students using the lab for other purposes. Students may gather in a large group study room to attend class, but all the college's masking and distancing requirements will need to be upheld in that room.
The computer lab on the fourth floor is often reserved for classes or other events, so students should check the door to make sure that nothing is scheduled during the time they wish to be in the fourth floor computer lab attending their class.
The second floor is the quiet floor so no classes where students need to be speaking can be attended virtually from the second floor.
