Room reservation requests are considered in the following order of priority:
- Library instruction sessions and research skills workshops
- Library and Museum Department meetings (typically two/month)
- Library-sponsored or co-sponsored events open to the public, including talks, concerts, and more
- Events sponsored by the Mines community and open to the public
Events intended for limited audiences (closed talks, meetings) are approved on a selective basis only.
The Boettcher Room is not available for reservation by non-Mines affiliated groups or individuals. It is also not available for non-Library instruction purposes, closed group study sessions, or for recurring events.
If the Library is unable to accommodate a reservation request, we will do our best to suggest alternate venues in the library or elsewhere on campus that can meet your group’s needs.
