Library Instruction Policies

Library Instruction Room Usage (Park 207 and 209)

The primary purpose of the rooms is to provide instruction on CMU Libraries’ services and resources. Instructional and non-instructional activities can be scheduled in the rooms, but non-instructional activities may be bumped if a room is needed for library instruction. 

Use of the rooms by non-library groups must be approved by the Coordinator of Library Research and Instruction Services or the Associate Dean of University Libraries. Please contact one of them one week prior to your event to make your request. 

Users of these rooms are responsible for operating the equipment in the rooms and making sure the library's food and beverage policy is observed. 

The rooms will not be scheduled for the use of any kind when the Park Library building is not open.

Tours for Non-CMU Groups

The CMU Libraries welcomes tour requests from local school and college groups and other groups not affiliated with Central Michigan University. There may be times during the academic year (e.g. during midterm and final examination periods) when we do not give tours to outside groups to maintain a quiet study atmosphere.  

A tour can include an introduction to the library building and an overview of resources and services. Tours will be tailored to the specific needs of each group.  

Library tours involving individuals under the age of 18 will be provided in compliance with CMU’s Minors Participating in CMU Activities policy.  

Tours of the University Library can be arranged through the Library Research and Instruction Services department and tours of the Clarke Historical Library can be arranged through the Director of the Clarke Historical Library.
