Study rooms are booked using the library's self-service room booking software. This can be accessed via the library webpages, or via the shortcut installed on the desktop of all library PCs. Look for this icon:

When you click on this icon you will be prompted to log in with your network username and password (the one you use for logging in to Blackboard). Once you have logged in you can book a room using the 'Find & book' or 'Check availability & book' links under the 'Bookings' tab in the top right corner of the screen:

To find rooms in Clifford Whitworth or in the Chapman building, select Peel Park campus. To find rooms in Allerton Learning Space, select Frederick Road campus. 

The only library study rooms that can't be booked using the Room Booking system are the Assistive Technology rooms, for use by students with support plans. There is one of these at each library site and they can be booked at the Enquiry desk, by phone or by email.

  2. Can staff use this system or does it only apply to students.
    The Library study rooms at Clifford Whitworth, Chapman Building and Allerton may only be booked by students. Rooms bookable by staff should be booked through central timetabling. More information can be found here http://sa.salford.ac.uk/page/roombookings
