Answer

The discussion rooms in Central Library can be found at Level 6 - also known as CLB-06-01A, CLB-06-01B, etc

Each discussion room, has a whiteboard (no projector but there are 2 powerpoints) and the size is such it can sit about 8 people comfortably.

Here are instructions on how to reserve a discussion room from the Central Library online .

 

  • Go to NUS Library homepage.
  • Under I Need to... select  Book a discussion room
  • At the login screen, enter your NUSNET ID and Password.
  • Select Genearal Facility.
  • At the CHOOSE VENUE field, click on the drop down button.
  • Look for heading LIB-DIS1 Discussion room 1, 2 ,etc. and click on the discussion room number of your choice.
  • At the CHOOSE field select the month using the drop down button.
  • Check the Calendar and click on the ORANGE dot for the date you want to make your booking.
  • At the FROM field, select the time you want to book (not more than 3 hours per booking).
  • At the PURPOSE field, enter a reason why you need to use the room.
  • Click the SUBMIT button once you have provided all the correct information.
  • Check the information and click OK after verifying the information.
  • Check the Calendar again. If your USER ID is on the Calendar for the date you booked, it means that your booking is successful.
  • Click on LOGOFF to sign out. Otherwise the next user will be booking under your name.

 

Currently, discussion rooms in the Central Library are all unlocked, so all you need to do is to turn up at the discussion room at the date and time you booked the room for. If there are other students there, please ask them to vacate the room.
