SCHEDULING GUIDELINES:

The specified rooms in GeoChemistry, Lincoln Field, and MacMillan Hall are intended to meet the longstanding needs of the Department of Geological Sciences, Chemistry, Center for Environmental Studies (CES) and the Environmental Change Initiative (ECI) for seminars, colloquia, conferences, and meetings. These rooms are also available for use by other departments, campus-wide, when not being used by Geology, Chemistry, CES or ECI. Please note that after-hours building access will need to be arranged for those not affiliated with the above mentioned departments; contact Brown's Public Safety Office for assistance with after-hours building access.

To minimize scheduling conflicts, those requesting resources are asked to book only for those times for which there is a very high likelihood that the planned activity will take place and to release the scheduled time as soon as it is known that a scheduled activity will not take place. Secondly, users reserving rooms should also understand that there may be times when they will be asked to reschedule or relocate their activity because the room is needed for another activity that is regarded as having higher priority. For example, regularly scheduled research meetings may have to be moved to accommodate an unanticipated seminar schedule change. If scheduling conflicts arise that cannot readily be resolved to the satisfaction of the users involved, then these conflicts will be referred to the Chair of Geological Sciences who, in consultation with the chairs or directors of the departments with competing claims, will make the final decision.
