Center for Collaboration and Development

How to Reserve Glickman 325/Room Guidelines

Please consider using Glickman 325 for your next collaborative session, workshop, Faculty Interest Group, community of practice meeting or faculty and staff gathering--both formal and informal.  

Description of Glickman 325:

The CCD comfortably seats 12-15 people in a collaborative working environment with modular furniture that can be rearranged to suit your needs. In addition to long tables and chairs, the space also has a variety of comfortable chairs and end tables suitable for smaller discussions or reading.  The space also includes a white board with dry erase markers, plenty of outlets to plug in personal computers, and a large monitor that you can hook up to your laptop to share presentations and media.  Coffee and tea are always available (Keurig pods), and food and drink are always allowed in the space.  Please note, the Director's office (Glickman 326) is inside the CCD, and she will sometimes make use of the office (with a closed door) when meetings are taking place.

Description of Bailey 223E:

Our second location is hosted by the Gorham campus library, and is located on the second floor. This space can also accomodate 12-15 people, and feature similar ammenities. It should be noted that this is a "shared space" and we appreciate your help in keeping it tidy. Coffee and supplies are located in the cabinet - please be sure to return everything to the way you found it, and enjoy our space!

Guidelines for using both Center locations:

*The Center for Collaboration and Development’s space is intended for collaboration, building community, reflection, sharing ideas, and getting feedback.  We at the CCD hope that in this space, faculty, staff and instructors will learn about one other’s work, discuss common accomplishments and concerns in their teaching, service, and scholarly work, mentor, collaborate, and build community across units (including informal gathering and socializing with colleagues). Please note: The space is not meant for office hours, meeting with students, student advising (the Learning Commons on the second floor of Glickman has dedicated space faculty can book for those purposes), or formal committee meetings.  If you have a question about appropriate use of the space, please contact Libby Bischof directly at elizabeth.bischof@maine.edu.  When the space is not in use for formal meetings (see calendar), faculty should feel free to meet informally, come and get a cup of coffee or tea, and relax or work on your own, or with other colleagues. 

*The CCD can only be accessed during the hours when the library is open.

*Signing up for the space: Priority of use for the space is given to those who are holding workshops, meetings, FIG sessions, and collaborative activities, etc. To book the CCD spaces (Room 325 Glickman, and 223E Bailey) please contact Diane Berry, Administrative Specialist in the Office of Registration and Scheduling Services at (207) 780-5616.  The CCD Calendar will reflect when the space is booked for meetings. When the CCD is not booked, please feel free to drop in!

*Swipe Card Access is required for 325 Glickman: You will need your USM ID to obtain a swipe card from the first floor Circulation Desk to access the CCD.  Please return the swipe card when you are done using the space.

*A key may be required for access to 223E Bailey: Please check in at the Circulation desk on the first floor. 

*Please leave the room the way you found it: When your meeting is finished, please put furniture back, clean up the refreshment area, erase the whiteboard, and throw away trash. These spaces are maintained by the CCD and we appreciate any and all help from you in order to keep them look welcoming.
