Library Room Use Guidelines

Conference Room Guidelines

  • To ensure availability, reservations should be submitted one week prior to the event. Any cancellations should be placed within 48 hours of the scheduled event.
  • All negotiations related to the event should be finalized between the UA Little Rock host and the Library Administration Office three days prior to the event.
  • The Library is unable to provide technical support. To be sure of a successful event, please do a trial of your program at least three days in advance. If applicable, reservation requests that indicate technology training will be tentatively scheduled and will be confirmed after training is completed on the equipment to be used. It is the responsibility of users to learn how to operate the podium and audio-visual equipment before an event.
  • Users are expected to leave the premises in a neat, undamaged, and orderly condition. The condition of the space will be evaluated after each event. All areas must be clean with no damage or missing equipment. Should users violate this condition, room reservation privileges may be revoked.
  • Please note the university allows use of the facilities subject to the restrictions for the use of university property as mandated by policies of the Board of Trustee of the University of Arkansas.
  • State law prohibits the collection of admission fees on UA Little Rock property with the exception of legitimate university events.
  • Smoking is not permitted anywhere on UA Little Rock property.
  • University property will not be moved from this building for any reason.

Please note that conference rooms are not available for group study.  Student reservations can include campus organizations (i.e. Student Government Association) and Master’s thesis and Doctoral dissertation defense presentations. Student and campus group events must have a UA Little Rock faculty/staff sponsor. This sponsor must attend all events and be willing to be responsible for—and personally oversee—the setup, as well as the restoration of the Ottenheimer Library room(s) to the original condition.
