The Presentation Practice Studio is equipped with the following:
- Presenter PC with InterWrite presentation technology
- Additional VGA and audio attachment for using personal laptops
- InterWrite interactive Screen/Whiteboard
- Microsoft Office (including PowerPoint) 2007
- DVD and VHS viewing equipment

Students may book the Presentation Practice Studio for a period of up to two hours using their university ID. Consecutive bookings will only be allowed if no other students are waiting.
Sims Library also asks that students keep in mind the following guidelines:
- The Presentation Practice Studio is a Student Tech Fee sponsored service and may only be reserved by university students for group study and scholarship purposes. Individuals and groups not making use of presentation technology during their reserved time may be asked to relocate to another study room.
- The studio is not soundproof so students are also asked to limit any excessive noise.
- At least one group member must remain in the room at all times. The studio must not be left unattended.
- Equipment in the room should only be rearranged by a staff member from the Media Department.
- Outside software programs and files should not be downloaded on Library PCs without first consulting the Media Department.
- Food or drink is not allowed in any of the Library classrooms.
Reservations may be made up to two weeks in advance and adequate time (typically one full business day) must be given for staff to receive your request and send a confirmation. When no confirmed reservations are scheduled, a first-come, first-served policy applies. Please contact the Media Department with any questions about reserving the Presentation Studio in advance.
Reservations may be made by students for study and scholarship purposes. No organizations please.
