Scheduling | General Instructions
Instructions for 230-B (Electronic Classroom) | Instructions for 230-C (Presentation Classroom)


Scheduling:
  1. Check the on-line schedules for electronic classroom 230-B or presentation classroom 230-C for availability. While these schedules are updated daily, they may not reflect recently submitted scheduling requests. Requests submitted over weekends and holidays will be processed the next working day.

    Submit Classroom Request Form. This should be done as early in the semester as possible. In order to expedite the request and confirmation process, all requests should be submitted via this form. If you are unable to use this form or have questions about the schedule, contact Andrea Hebert at 578-7195 or ahebert@lsu.edu.

    Note: Instructors do not come with the classrooms. If you would like a member of the LSU Libraries staff to provide instruction, contact your Subject Liaison to schedule an instruction session. If your class is part of the English Department's Firstyear Writing program, use the form found on the Firstyear Writing Library Resources web page.

  2. You will be notified promptly, via e-mail, re. the status of your request. The Classroom should not be considered reserved until you receive a confirmation of reservation.

General Instructions:
  1. Key bags are picked up at the Circulation Desk, Middleton Library. All keys must be checked out by the faculty or staff member who has reserved the room (not a student). Instructors will be asked to present an ID at the circulation desk when picking up keys. The bag will contain instructions for the use of the room and a room key.

    No food or drinks are allowed in the classrooms.

    No students should be left in the classroom unsupervised.

    The machines may not be reconfigured under any circumstances.
    • The PCs in room 230-B (the electronic classroom) are configured almost exactly like the computers accessed in the Computing Services computer labs. See the OCS Public Access Labs home page to get an idea of what software is available. To request software installation see the "Software Install Requests" form linked from your PAWS desktop under "Instructional Support."
    • The PC in room 230-C has limited software installed. It does have Microsoft Office products, including PowerPoint, Netscape, and Internet Explorer. If there is something else you need for a class, contact Andrea Hebert at ahebert@lsu.edu.

    All computers should be logged off, whiteboards wiped clean and markers properly capped and stored, at the end of the class time.

    The lectern must be turned off when the class has ended. Please remember, the projector bulbs have a limited life span and are very expensive! Turning the lectern off automatically turns the projector off.

    The overhead lights should be turned off, the door locked, and the key bag returned promptly to the Reference desk in preparation for the next scheduled class.

  2. If you encounter difficulty with the equipment, telephones are located in each room to call for assistance (reference desk - 578-8875). Do not attempt to fix the equipment yourself.

Instructions for 230-B, Electronic Classroom
  • Upon entering:
    1. Once the door is unlocked, it will remain so until it is locked again.

      Light switches are located next to the door and next to the instructor's workstation.

      • The second light switch by the instructors station controls the security lights in the back of the room. Please do not turn these lights off. They may be dimmed by adjusting a very small sliding switch on the immediate right of the light switch.

      Machines should be logged off when you enter the room. All students and faculty should have PAWS accounts, and should use their PAWS user names and passwords to log them on.

The user must select the appropriate printer immediately after selecting "print." There is a pull down box with the printer selections.
