There are student-use computers located on the 1st (Main Entry) Floor and in the e-Classroom on Level B. All computers have word processing software. Please ask for headphones at the Circulation Desk. There are also data ports located throughout the library for laptop connections to the campus network as well as wireless access.
The library provides ample amounts of comfortable study space. However, should you require a personal desk where you can leave research materials for the semester, ask at the Circulation Desk about how you can reserve a desk for your semester or year-long research project. Desks are assigned between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Faculty Reading Room is a private space reserved exclusively for Denison faculty. The room is locked, with swipe-card access using your faculty D-Card. There are a variety of workspaces to facilitate individual or collaborative use as well as a selection of comfortable seating options. There’s a small kitchenette with a sink, coffee maker, microwave, and refrigerator. The room is available during Doane Library operating hours and used on a first-come, first-served basis. Ask at the Circulation Desk about reserving one of the lockers for your research materials.
The One Button Studio is an easy-to-use video recording studio, on Level 2 of the library, room 204, near the south stairwell. Check out the key at the Circulation desk on the first floor. Reserve the space using the CONSORT Catalog and searching for the title “One button studio,” then clicking “Book this Material” and entering your name and D number (including the D). Pick up the key at the Circulation Desk at the library’s main entrance.
