Update: as of Wednesday, August 20, 2020, the Library is, regretfully, suspending the teleconferencing service. The pilot in the Administration conference room demonstrated that it simply isn't a viable option at this time. The Library apologizes for the loss of the service, and will continue to work towards the goal of resuming it as soon as is feasible. If you have questions about this service, please email David Moody, Library IT Director: dam8u@virginia.edu.

As of Friday, August 7th, teleconferencing services are no longer available in Room 1212. Instead, Library users in need of this service may instead contact the Library Information Technology team to discuss possible options, one of which might be to reserve the Administration conference room.  

Located on the second floor (in the staff area behind the Service Desk) the conference room was already equipped with a large screen, built-in cameras, speakers, microphones, HDMI connectors for laptops, and Crestron AirMedia, a wireless presentation technology. Both Webex and Zoom have been successfully deployed in this space, and the IT team continues working to further transition the space to better serve teleconferencing needs. Under current social distancing guidelines, the Administration conference room (at 332 square feet), can accommodate a maximum of four people at one time. 

Room 1212 will continue to serve as a meeting space, with whiteboard walls and furniture suitable for group meetings. At 328 square feet, 1212 can accommodate a maximum of six people under current social distancing guidelines.

If you have questions about the Admin conference room or Room 1212, please ask them via the Ask Us form
