Bartle Tabling Guidelines
- Tabling cannot be reserved for personal use. Outside groups/vendors not affiliated with the University are permitted but must contact the Multicultural Resource Center (MRC) for approval at 607-777-4472 and may be assessed a fee.
- Radios, stereos, or amplified sound of any kind is not allowed in the library due to classes and other library use.
- During each semester, tabling is strictly prohibited during the first week of classes.
- Tables may be reserved in the Bartle Library from the hours of noon – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. There is no tabling outside those hours or any tabling on the weekends. Only one (1) table is permitted per group per day. Tabling may not be available on federal holidays, during university breaks or in the case of campus emergency.
- Reservation requests require a four-day turnaround time. Requests are processed Monday through Friday only.
- Tabling must be done through B-There (bthere.binghamton.edu) with an approved account. Tabling must be properly identified and described in the
"Description/Title" section of the request form. Descriptive term options:
- 1. Information Tabling,
- 2. Bake Sale Tabling,
- 3. Item Sale Tabling,
- 4. Ticket Sale Tabling are acceptable, or
- 5. Other.
- If choosing one of the options to sell, you must include details on what you plan to sell.
- If approved and you decide to make changes, you must contact email@example.com, within two business days of your reservation, to communicate the change. Failure to specify what you plan to sell in your request or groups that misrepresent their tabling event (by reserving an information/item sell table and attempting to conduct a bake sale) will result in an interminable loss of tabling privileges.
- Cancellation Policy:
- If cancellation for a reservation request is needed, please notify the MRC within 2 Business days of requested tabling day via firstname.lastname@example.org or by cancelling reservation on B-There. If you wish to make a change in the date of your tabling reservation you will need to cancel the reservation and submit a new request.
- If tabling reservations are full, requestors will be given an option to be added to the waitlist. If an available spot opens up, the requestor will be given 24 hours to accept or the spot will automatically go to the next available requestor on the list.
- Item sales can include things like hats, mugs, water bottles, keychains, etc. Ticket sales are for tickets to university department or student organization sponsored events only. All other ticket sales should work with the University box office or Student Association directly.
- When filling out the request form, you must clearly state in the event description box what you are selling.
- Sales and distribution must abide by all Binghamton University’s policies and procedures. This includes selling or distributing illegal or alcoholic substances. The sale or distribution of illegal substances is expressly prohibited anywhere on campus.
- Please note: submitting a table reservation in your organization’s name and then passing off to another group, without prior written approval, is grounds for losing your tabling privileges for the academic year. Those with repeat violations may lose privileges indefinitely.
- Organizations scheduled for tabling must arrive to claim their tables between 11:45 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. Failure to arrive and claim a table by 12:15 p.m. will result in the loss of the tabling reservation for that day. No appeals will be granted, so please make sure you are on time. Organizations that repeatedly (three times) fail to claim their tabling may be subject to loss of tabling reservation privileges for the remainder of the academic year.
- For each day, there may only be up to three (3) bake sale tables, the remaining tables can be used for any of the other options.
- Each individual or group tabling is responsible for cleaning their area after use.
- In the case of cleaning needs or property damage, individuals and/groups will be held responsible for any and all cleaning and repair costs.
- University recognized groups or campus departments may host an outside group/vendor with approval from the Multicultural Resource Center. The hosting group is required to pay a $75.00 vendor fee for use of a table in the Bartle Library. The vendor fee can be paid to the MRC Office Manager LS-G500 or DEI Secretary in LS-G548, payable to Foundation Account 50521.
