Our group study rooms are controlled through the Library circulation
process. They have a self-checkout setup using the same software they
use to book other library resources (like books or media on reserve).
Once they have reserved a room, they come to the library desk to
checkout a key like a book, and it has a designated time limit.
We have 25 of these rooms and they are an incredibly popular resource.
