Reserving the Space

To reserve the KnowledgeLab space, please email boconnell@smith.edu.  When the space is reserved, preference is given to the party who reserved it.  When the space is not reserved, it is open to anyone who wants to use it!  Additionally, reserving the space gives you open access to the materials in the locked storage cabinet, which otherwise can only be accessed with the help of a KnowledgeLab staff person (who has the keys to the cabinet.)
