Tabling (Kolligian Library 155-Kashian Reading Room)
KL155 on the first floor of the library serves primarily as a reading room, but it is available for limited use by:
- Office of Student Life and sanctioned UC Merced clubs*
- UC Merced departments
Space inside and immediately outside KL155 is set aside for tabling.
- Maximum simultaneous tables inside: 6
- Maximum simultaneous tables outside: 10
Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations should be made as far in advance as possible to ensure availability of space. Reservation requests must include set-up and clean-up time. Tabling coordinators/sponsors are responsible for compliance with Library policies during the event. Failure to comply with established policies may result in suspension of reservation privileges.
Access and Safety
The glass doors provide primary access to the Library and primary emergency egress. Because of access and safety requirements, tabling is only allowed in designated locations as indicated on the tabling diagram.
Event coordinators/sponsors are responsible for set-up and clean-up. Furniture moving must be contracted with UC Merced Facilities Management department. Furniture must be repositioned immediately following the completion of scheduled tabling.
Access to the coffee kiosk, the doors that provide access to the west wing, and entrance/exit doors must not be blocked or obstructed.
*UCM clubs may request table(s) by visiting OSL's front desk.
KL 155 is by nature a noisy space. The normal noise of a group of people does not disrupt those who are using other Library reading rooms. However, amplified sound is disruptive to activities in surrounding spaces. Voice and music amplification is not allowed inside or immediately outside KL155 except on Friday and Saturday evenings after 6:00pm. Exceptions must be approved in advance by the University Librarian.
Information and directional signs
No signage may be posted on any exterior or interior surface of the Kolligian Library. Free-standing, temporary signs provided by the event host may be used if they do not interfere with Library operations and if they are removed promptly after the event.
Set-up and Clean-up
Tabling and associated activities (including set-up and clean-up) must be held within Library operating hours. Clean-up must be completed immediately following each activity and no later than one hour prior to the scheduled Library closing hour. Exceptions must be approved in advance by the University Librarian.
