Questions regarding registration, renewal, and use of carrels should be directed to Robert Iannapollo, Circulation Supervisor. He may also be contacted if you are having a problem with temperature, lighting, study schedules with your carrel mate, etc. His office is located behind the Circulation Desk, phone x4-1306.
The assigned carrels on the fourth floor are intended for the use of graduate students involved in intensive research and study. Assignments are based on the following order of priority:
- Doctoral students in Music Education, Musicology, and Theory
- Masters students in Music Education, Musicology, and Theory; DMA students writing a dissertation
- Doctoral students in Composition and DMA students
Within this structure, carrels are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Please do not sign up for a carrel if you are going to use it only occasionally! Carrels are generally assigned for the academic year. Returning students may renew their carrels at the end of the spring semester. Students who are not returning must vacate their carrels by the end of the spring semester.
Due to the increasing number of graduate students in need of carrels and the limited number of spaces, carrels may have more than one person assigned to them.
