The Bioscience, Natural Resources & Public Health Library Training Room is located at Room 2189 Valley Life Sciences Building (VLSB). Reservation priority is given to Library instruction sessions that focus on the subject areas of the Life & Health Sciences Division: the Division of Biological Sciences, the College of Natural Resources, the School of Public Health, and the School of Optometry. Other UC Berkeley Library and subject groups may request use of the room after Life & Health Sciences Division Libraries instructional needs are met. Room 2189 is not available for regular class scheduling.
Room 2189 may only be used for Library-related authorized events and only for the date and time approved. The Training Room Instructor must be a Library or University instructor and must be present to monitor the room’s use.
Hours of use: Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm.
Reservation requests to use Room 2189 should be made in advance through the LHS Divsion Librarians. Please provide the name, address, phone number, and affiliation of the Instructor, the official name of the group, purpose, and anticipated audience size. Complete the reservation form and submit it online. You will be contacted regarding approval of your request. Contact information is on the reservation form.
During heavy instruction periods (e.g., early- to mid-semester), we may need to limit advance reservations. Although we wish to be accommodating, Library instruction has priority.
Room 2189 is wheelchair accessible and seats 48. It includes 38 computer workstations, a video projection system controlled from the instructor's station, 1 PC and 1 iMac instructor computer, an adjustable-height lectern and a whiteboard. The room has wireless access and active data connections. Apart from the equipment described above, the Library does not supply computer equipment. Signage can only be posted on the Training Room sign holder.
