Library Carrels:

  • General Information 

The Guin Library's Carrels are primarily for short-term use (3-6 months) for Oregon State University faculty/graduate students/visiting researchers/and students. 

Longer-term use (six to twelve months) is on an "as available" basis and is arranged by the Library Director in consultation with the HMSC Research Facility Coordinator. 

Priority goes to graduate students studying for comprehensive examinations or finishing theses, and faculty members working on short-term projects. 

 

  • Graduate Students 

Carrels are available to graduate students who are studying for oral or written examinations, or who are in the final phases of their writing and research.  

Carrels are not substitutes for offices; Regular graduate student office space can be requested through the HMSC Research Facility Coordinator.  

The graduate student major professor must email the Library Director stating why there is a need for a carrel. To renew the carrel, email the Library Director. 

 

  • Day Use 

The library also has a carrel that is available for drop-in use for a day. If you would like to use it, please ask a library staff member and they will unlock it for you.
