Research Room Booking
The research room at BU CARES is available for education faculty and students doing research. The list of available research equipment (BU CARES Inventory) available through BU CARES is fairly extensive, including wireless/wired internet access, voice recording equipment, transcription pedal, and others. NVIVO and Survey Monkey licenses can be requested at a discounted fee.
The room and equipment can be booked FREE for students, depending on availability. For faculty members requesting the use of the BU CARES Research Room or Equipment for a funded project, they are advised to consult with the BU CARES Director in advance of preparing their budget to incorporate maintenance expenses in their application. This consultation may result in a letter of support from BU CARES.
During high demand, maximum booking length is 2 hours per day. In the case of conflict, BU CARES provides access to the research room in this order of priority:
- Research projects directly studying rural and Aboriginal education
- Research projects in the Faculty of Education
- Research projects which are community-based
- Other research projects
To book the BU CARES research room, please use the calendar posted on the Research Room door. To request the use of BU CARES research equipment, please contact the Director (firstname.lastname@example.org).
