Grafton has a number of classrooms and spaces designed for student use. Students are encouraged to explore the library and make use of the space as they see fit. With minor exceptions, any space that is unlocked and unoccupied is available for use as a study space. We do require that you be respectful of those around you, so larger (i.e. louder) groups of students may be asked to move to more suitable spaces.
There is a room on the Mezzanine (GRA301) set up for use as a group study room. The use of this room is first come, first serve. If you know you would like to make use of this room at a certain time, you can reserve the room here.
GRA105 is a computer lab equipped for language instruction with 24 computers. This is first and foremost a classroom, but when classes are not in session, students are free to use the equipment. Please be aware that you may be asked to leave the classroom in order for a class to take place.
The Reigner room on the Mezzanine floor is often used as a meeting space for various departments around campus. When it is not in use, students may use it as a study space. Be aware that you may be asked to leave the room if another event is scheduled.
The library instruction classroom is located on the Mezzanine of the library. This room is reserved by the library, with priority to library instruction and librarians. We do allow others to use this room on a case by case basis. Send any requests to firstname.lastname@example.org, or inquire at the front desk.
Study carrels are available to students, and can be reserved on a semester-by-semester basis. If you'd like a carrel for the semester, inquire at the front desk.
The Grafton Library Collab is still in development.
The Grafton Library Collaborative Laboratory (Collab) is a collaborative working space designed for group projects, as well as sound, video, and image editing.
The lab contains a Mac equipped with Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, Premiere Pro, etc.), as well as a webcam and microphone to allow for video and audio recording.
Desktop computers are located on the Main and Mezzanine floors for patron use. Between scheduled classes, Mary Baldwin community members can also use the computers in the computer lab on the first floor of the library. Consult the library's operating hours and the room schedules posted on lab doors.
The library offers access to circulating laptops. These are available for 4 hour check-out at the circulation desk. Library staff will hold your ID until you return the laptop. You need to sign an Electronic Devices Loan Agreement form. For more information, see the Laptop Policy.
Wireless access is available for patrons throughout the library. Patrons need to login to the Mary Baldwin network. If you experience issues with the wireless service, please contact the OIT Help Desk (** or 7075).
Combination copier / scanner / printers are available on the First and Main Floors. Mary Baldwin community members can copy, print, and scan documents to their Mary Baldwin U: drive or a USB flash drive. Printing is free but not unlimited. Students can print approximately 1000 pages before they will need to contact the Office of Information Technology (** or 7075).
Mary Baldwin community members can print wirelessly to the printers in Grafton Library. Send the item that you want to print (doc or pdf) as an attachment to email@example.com.
You will need to login to the printer and release it through Secure Print. See OIT's Printing Page for more info.
