The Library Instruction Classroom is located on the second floor of the Poynter Library, in room 218. Twenty-four desktop computers are available in the room, which has a large 90" display at the front and connects to a pay-for-print system. First priority in scheduling goes to library-related instruction; however, USF sponsored or attended training sessions, or non-recurring instruction sessions may be scheduled when the room is not in use by Library staff. Full listings of hardware and software can be found on the Hardware & Software Resources pages at

Non-USF sponsored use may incur a fee based on the status of the group and any systems needs. USF sponsored groups are considered those that are both HOSTED AND ATTENDED by parties employed or funded directly by the University of South Florida. A Non-USF Sponsored group is any party not employed or funded directly by the University of South Florida. In accordance with USF and SUS policies and procedures, such groups will be charged for lab use whether hosting a session or receiving instruction, according to their profit or non-profit status. Any non-USF sponsored groups, as described above, must contact the Head of Systems & Digital Technology to verify any software or hardware requirements beyond those outlined in the Software Inventory and Hardware Specifications, and also the Head of Library Research and Instruction for availability. Hardware or software installations may be performed based on the capacity of the machines, availability of staff, and the scope and time frame of the project. Special software requests may be subject to fees to recover costs.

Requests to reserve the classroom must be made with the Head of Library Research and Instruction or the Head of Library Systems & Digital Technology. Requestors may use the online form Library Instruction Classroom Reservation Request Form (POY 218) . The Library reserves the right to deny a request.
