The Herklotz Room in the Music Library

One-time class meetings and events sponsored by USC faculty, staff or student organizations qualify for use in the Herklotz Room. Preference is given to the Thornton School of Music.  Specifically designed to support events that require multimedia display, the Herklotz Room is fully equipped with a large screen monitor and built-in computer, as well as DVD and VCR players. Laptop computers may also be connected to the system, and VGA cables are available for checkout at the circulation desk.

The Herklotz Room is designed for groups of  up to 24 people. If your group exceeds this number, your reservation will be rejected.

RESERVATIONS:

Reservations must be made via the online form at least 7 business days in advance. Walk-in reservation requests may not be accepted. Reservations will be accepted beginning on the following dates for the corresponding semesters:

Fall: August 1
Spring: December 1
Summer: The Herklotz Room will be unavailable during the summer semester. We apologize for any inconvenience.

It is the user's responsibility to obtain approval from the Music Library manager prior to accessing the space. The user will be held responsible for loss or damage to the room and its equipment during the session.

CANCELLATIONS:

If a session is cancelled, the user must notify Kimberly Lamb at (213) 740-5797 so other requests may be served. If the user has not arrived 15 minutes after the scheduled starting time and did not provide notification of the cancellation, the session will be cancelled automatically, and the room will be available for other users.

Repeated failure to give notice of cancellations may lead to suspension of reservation privileges.

EQUIPMENT OPERATIONS:

Users must contact the Music Library prior to the event for information about equipment capabilities or to arrange training. Please report any equipment malfunctions to the Music Library circulation desk.

CLEAN-UP:

Please leave the Herklotz Room clean and in good condition. All areas must be properly restored after the event and the equipment switched off. Repeated abuse may result in suspension of reservation privileges. Any materials left in the rooms will be discarded.
