Policies and Guidelines

Reservation/Use

  • To reserve this space, fill out the form at http://med.uc.edu/comlibraries/informatics-lab-form/. With any other questions please contact us at informaticslab@uc.edu.
  • Informatics Lab is open to the UC students, faculty, and staff. The highest priority is given to UC AHC faculty, staff, and graduate students.
  • Due to the unique and specialized equipment available in the Informatics Lab, recurring and repetitive reservations are limited so it may serve a wide range of groups within the AHC.
  • A minimum group of three individuals is required to reserve the entire room. Individuals can reserve the computers.
  • Faculty, staff, or graduate students may reserve the room for two hours at a time. It is possible to reserve two, two-hour timeslots for longer projects or meetings.
  • If this room is not used within 20 minutes of the scheduled reservation start-time, it is considered vacant and will be available to others on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • Based on interest and use, we plan to expand this space with more equipment and programs.
