Applications for Graduate Spaces are now open for the 2019-2020 academic year. Assignments are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Apply here

There are two types of graduate study space. Students may request a locker, a desk, or a locker and desk. 

  • Desks in locked shared study rooms
    • Students are given a key that will open graduate study rooms 504-511, 537 and may use any vacant desk in any room. Since all rooms are open to anyone with a key, items should not be left unattended.
  • Lockers
    • Graduate lockers are located near the entrance to graduate study spaces. The lockers are intended for research material and notes. Food, drink, and footwear may not be stored in the lockers. Any library materials stored in the lockers must be signed out to the account of the locker owner.

It is being reported that an unsecured Elsevier server has resulted in a number of user email addresses and passwords being exposed, potentially leaving them vulnerable to unauthorized use.

Elsevier has responded that this security breach was due to a server being improperly configured, and that the problem has since been corrected. Elsevier is continuing their investigation into the matter and will communicate directly with their users on what steps to take.

The Library currently subscribes to a number of Elsevier services, including:

If you have created an account with any of these Elsevier services, we strongly recommend that you change the password for your Elsevier account immediately.

Note that all of these services use the same account for authentication, so changing your password once should update it with all services. However, if you have created multiple accounts with Elsevier using different email addresses, you will need to update each account’s password separately.

Carleton MyCarletonOne accounts are not affected by this issue.
