Presentation Practice Rooms

The Library provides two Presentation Practice Rooms where individuals or groups can work on oral presentations, rehearse timing and slide transitions, prepare for class or conference presentations, thesis defenses, and so on. They are intended for practice only and are not to be used to host seminars or other events.

  • Locations: The Geisel space (Room 2) is located in the East Commons (2nd Floor) near the service desk. The Biomedical Library Building (BLB) room is on the 1st Floor in the BLB Commons, room 123.
  • Eligible Users: UC San Diego students, staff, and faculty with current ID may reserve rooms. Visiting scholars may use the rooms by arranging to have one reserved by a UC San Diego faculty or staff member.
  • Policies: All Library policies are in effect in these rooms, with particular emphasis on the Library's food & drink policy. Clean up after yourself and leave the room in good condition for later users. Failure to adhere to these policies may result in temporary or permanent loss of access to these and other group study rooms.
  • Access: Reserve a room for up to three hours at a time, up to two days in advance. If the rooms are unreserved, access is first-come, first-served as with any study room.
  • Equipment: The BLB room offers a screen, a wall-mounted TV (for laptop hookup) , and a lectern. The Geisel room has a large wall-mounted TV and lectern.
