If you’re among the thousands of students each term who books group-study rooms at the R. Howard Webster Library, Georges P. Vanier Library or Grey Nuns Reading Room, you’ll be pleased to learn the library is piloting a touch-screen room reservation system.

What! When? 

The pilot starts on May 3, just outside Room LB-547 (Lithuania Room), on the fifth floor of the Webster Library.

Touch screens will simplify the on-site process of viewing the availability of group-study rooms, making reservations, modifications, checking-in and ending reservations.

The library intends for this new system to make it even easier for you to book space to work with others.

Don’t forget to share your feedback

Once you’ve booked a room using the screen or taken a tour of the system’s functionality, you can share your feedback on-site, or online.

The consultation process is designed to ensure the final product meets users’ needs. 

If you’re not able to drop by Room LB-547 to try the system, you can always take a peek at how it works.


You can still reserve group-study rooms online

If you prefer to continue using your smartphone, tablet or computer to book one of the 34 group-study rooms across both campuses, rest assured you can still do so using the online Concordia Libraries Booking System.
