What are carrels?

Carrels are private, lockable study rooms. Researchers who need to be close to library resources, or those who need a quiet work space, may request a carrel for personal use. 

Books may be signed out to the carrel with a separate borrowing card.  PCs and laptop computers may be used in all carrels and all carrels have access to the wireless network.  Some carrels have docking port access to the University network.
