The Library has a limited number of short-term study carrels available throughout the building. Study carrels may be checked out with a valid UAB identification card at the OneDesk. Use of study carrels is limited to one person at a time.
Short-Term Study Carrels
Current UAB students, faculty, staff, and active alumni who are seeking a place for intensive short-term study may use carrels. Carrels may be checked out for a period of three hours and renewed once. Overdue fines will be charged at five cents a minute which is three dollars ($3) per hour. Short-term study carrels cannot be reserved in advance. Short-term study carrels may be checked out with a valid UAB ID at the OneDesk.
Long-Term Study Carrels
Long-term carrels are available to current UAB faculty, graduate students, and students with disabilities. Due to limited availability, all carrel assignments are checked out by term on a semester-by-semester basis. Overdue fines will be charged at a rate of ten dollars ($10) per day. A completed Library Carrel Application form is required to check out a long-term carrel. This form may be picked up in person at the OneDesk, or it may be printed.
Meeting Room - Sterne SL 174
The Sterne Library has a meeting space available for use by others on campus. Because library-related instruction peaks at the beginning of each semester, use of SL 174 is reserved for library use and library-sponsored instruction only between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. during the months of September-November and January-March.
