Library Instruction Labs

Foley Center Library has three instruction labs, West, East A, and East B. All are on the main floor of the library.  West Classroom has 30 workstations. East A and East B have movable furniture and plenty of outlets to plug in personal devices. A and B can be combined to accommodate larger classes.

Primary Purpose of the Library Instruction Labs: The primary purpose of the library instruction labs is for information literacy instruction or workshops taught by a librarian.  When the labs are not in use for a library class or workshop, they are open for use by Gonzaga students for study and research.

Non-Library use of the Labs: Library instruction labs are not available as a location for regular classes. However, other departments may schedule a lab for a one-time class, meeting, or workshop at the discretion of the Library Instruction Coordinator.  

Instruction Labs Food Policy: The Food Policy for the library applies to the instruction labs. Covered beverages and snack foods are permitted. Hot, messy, or smelly food is not allowed.
