Faculty Writing Room

The faculty writing room is a shared space that also serves as the Special Collections & Archives reading room. The space is located on the second floor of the McGraw-Page Library in the Special Collections & Archives. The faculty writing room is available during regular library hours, and no appointment is necessary. If library staff are not present, faculty may check out the key to the space at the Information Desk. 

We ask that you please sign in when you use the space, so that the library can track usage.
