The following lab policies have been established to serve the interest of our students and to provide an environment most conducive to their academic endeavors.

 

Gooch Computer Lab

With the exceptions detailed below, the Gooch Computer Lab is restricted to current students, faculty, and staff of Navarro College or persons who are currently enrolled in programs sponsored by the college (e.g., GED) or which have a presence at the college (e.g., programs in the Texas A&M/Navarro College partnership).

All persons using the lab must at all times wear a clearly displayed, currently valid Navarro College student ID or a currently valid student ID issued by one of the colleges which have a presence at Navarro College (e.g. Tarelton State, A&M Commerce).

Visitors who need to use the lab to complete FAFSA or college registration must first obtain a visitor’s ID bracelet. ID bracelets can be obtained from the office of the registrar on the first floor of the Gooch Student Center or from the library assistant in the Gooch Lab. Please note that such persons may be accompanied by no more than one adult to assist them. Visitors should understand that members of the library staff will not be able to assist them in completing FAFSA applications. They will assist applicants in finding the FAFSA web site, but they are not qualified to assist any further in the application process.

Veterans who need online access to apply for GI Bill benefits or FAFSA may also use the lab after having obtained a visitor ID bracelet from the registrar (or any other office responsible for issuing visitor IDs).

The lab serves the academic mission of the library and has been designated a Quiet Area devoted to study and academic pursuits. Anyone creating a disturbance in the lab will be asked to leave and will be subject to disciplinary action by the college authorities. Please note that cell phone use is not permitted in the lab. Persons who wish to use the lab are required to silence their cell phones before entering the lab.

Printing is limited to no more than twenty pages per day. If you need assistance with printing, please seek assistance from one of the staff.

Please do not leave personal items unattended. The library staff is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Please do not bring food or drinks into the lab.

No one will be admitted to the Gooch lab during the final 15 minutes the lab is open.

The Gooch Lab is part of the Navarro College Libraries.

Evening Reservation of the Gooch Computer Lab

We are very pleased to make the Gooch Computer Lab available in the evenings to the Adult Education program and to other programs sponsored by Navarro College.

In order for us to provide access to the lab after normal opening hours, we need to know in advance who is going to be using the lab as well as the dates and times the lab is going to be used. Instructors in several different programs have reserved the lab after hours, so it is extremely important that we are able to maintain an accurate and up-to-date calendar to avoid scheduling conflicts. Instructors also need to receive confirmation of their reservation requests well in advance so they can be sure the lab will be available when they need it.

The sooner you can make your reservation requests, the better. We must receive your request no later than 4:00 pm on the day prior to the evening for which you wish to reserve the lab.

The library staff’s role is simply to handle reservation requests. They maintain the reservation calendar. They will confirm requests if the lab is available. If the lab is not available, they will contact the instructor who submitted the request as soon as possible via e-mail.

Instructors are responsible for securing access to the computer lab by contacting the Campus Police.

An instructor must be in the lab at all times when the lab is open after hours.

Food and drink are not permitted in the lab. Requests should be sent to mary.palmeri@navarrocollege.edu.

When submitting requests, the instructor must include his or her name, the relevant program (or course) and the specific date(s) and times during which he or she plans to use the lab. Requests must be submitted no later than 4:00 on the day prior to the evening for which the instructor wishes to reserve the lab.

We are delighted to be able to support college programs by making the Gooch Lab available after hours. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us continue to provide this service.
