Dana Main Conference Room (Capacity 8 – 10):
The Dana Main Conference Room has a wall-mounted monitor with computer (keyboard and mouse available at the Main Desk). Users can also connect a laptop to the monitor. UVM students, faculty, staff, and UVMMC employees can reserve the room up to 2 weeks in advance. Please contact the Main Desk at 656-2200 to make a reservation. For day-of use, a daily calendar is posted on the door of the room. Individuals and groups can hand write in reservations for times that are not already reserved.
Dana Classroom (Capacity 18):
The classroom is furnished with 18 moveable tables and chairs and contains an instructor’s computer and projection system as well as a monitor. Personal laptops may also be connected to the system. Classroom reservations are for instructional use for Dana Medical Library employees, Learning Commons colleagues and UVM affiliated departments. Faculty and researchers can reserve the classroom for non-curriculum-based sessions, events, or workshops by contacting Kate Bright in Dana Administration at 656-0695 or by emailing Kate.Bright@uvm.edu. Reservations can be made up to 6 months in advance. The weekly schedule for the room is posted on the door. During the time that the room is not reserved, it functions as additional study space for students, group or individual. Please do not write on the schedule that is on the door. When the room is not scheduled, it is for general use and cannot be scheduled day of.
Dana’s Collaborative & Online Learning Area and Quiet Study:
Dana has an area that is specifically for collaborative work with others, either in person or online. This is considered our “noisy area” and we welcome conversation at a reasonable level. Please make sure to respect those working around you when having conversations. Dana also has a quiet study area. Please take conversations and phone calls outside of this area. Both spaces are open to all.
Library furniture includes large tables, standing and modular desks, “brody” pods and desks, and soft seating throughout. For additional information about the library, go to our visiting the library webpage.
