Burling Second-Floor Classroom

The Burling second-floor classroom may be used for single classes, for semester-long courses, or for larger meetings. The classroom is set up like many of the HSSC classrooms with a teaching table connection panel located on the instructor's podium/desk.  It currently includes 12 mobile tables seating 2 people each, 2 large monitors equipped with Airtame screen sharing software, a Blu-ray DVD player, a document camera and, upon request, a multi-region DVD player available for checkout at the Burling Circulation Desk.

For reservations for single sessions (classes and meetings), send a request to classroom reservations or contact Sharon Clayton, administrative assistant to the librarian (641-269-3351). Please include the time and date, course number, and instructor name in your request.

To schedule the classroom for semester-long courses, contact the registrar. The fall semester, Tuesday–Thursday 8–9:50 a.m. time block is not available for semester-long courses, as it is reserved for research literacy instruction for Tutorial.

The classroom is open for group study when not reserved for meetings or classes, so faculty are encouraged to arrive early to set up and familiarize themselves  with the equipment prior to the event.

For AV questions or problems, ITS asks that faculty please contact them at 641-269-4901 or ITservices@Grinnell.edu
