Seniors – get shelf space for your books
In lieu of thesis desks, Reed Library is offering shelf space to store your library books. You are welcome to use any desk in the library to study, keeping in mind proper social distancing. Please return all books to your assigned shelf space when leaving the library or take them with you. Books left on desks will be checked into the book quarantine and reshelved after 72 hours. To request shelf space, use this form. You will immediately be designated a number corresponding to (3) – 35″ shelves. Thesis shelves are located in the south stacks in lower level one of the library. Questions? Email email@example.com

Thesis Desk Lottery
Random numbers for the Senior thesis desk lottery will be drawn from the official 470 list. If you are a senior, but are not yet registered for 470, and want to be included in the drawing, please come to the circulation desk and have your name added to the lottery list by Monday, September 16. Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Studio Art, and Psychology majors are not eligible for thesis desks in the Library.
The list of numbers will be posted Tuesday, September 17 along with a map of thesis desk locations, so that you can have preferences in mind before the actual selection.
The choosing of desks will begin at noon on Wednesday, September 18 in the library lobby. You or your proxy must be present when your name is called. Lottery numbers are not transferable.
NOTE: Some desks, as indicated on the map, will be shared. In order to help create the most pleasant sharing arrangement possible, the person with the better number may bring in as a partner another senior on the list who has a lower number. Please make those arrangements before the noon time selection and let us know that is your plan when your name is called.
