Library Introduces Reservation System
The DiPietro Library welcomes students to use our facilities and resources!
In order to adhere to occupancy limits and general health and safety guidelines, however,
we ask that you reserve a seat, group study room, or computer if you plan to be in
the Library for more than five minutes. Students may reserve space before coming to the Library or once they arrive. The link for reservations is also available on the Library web page by clicking on the “Reserve a Seat” button.
Note: if you are entering the Library to pick up a print job or other item, you do
not need a reservation.
Once you have accessed the system, simply follow the directions on the screen.
After you have reserved a seat, you will receive an email that includes a code you
need to complete the reservation process. When you arrive, scan the QR code taped
onto the seat, room, or computer you have reserved, and then enter the code provided
in the email message.
Once your work is finished, please use the check-out button and disinfect the area
using wipes provided.
If you encounter problems, please email , call (603) 899-4140 or stop by the Circulation Desk.
