Signup rules:

1. Reservations are limited to no more than 48 consecutive hrs M-F per group on a given instrument unless approved by the facility manager. A group can reserve an instrument for a longer period (up to 72 hrs) if the reservation spans the entire weekend. A group can not book time concurrently on replicate instruments (i.e. the Cary 50s or the Cary 500s). This applies to all instruments except the AFM-Raman. For the AFM-Raman, reservations are limited to no more than 1.5 consecutive hours between the hours of 8am-5pm M-F with a max of 1.5 hours total each day. You are allotted another 3 hour slot daily M-F from 5pm-10pm. You may book the entire time from 10pm-8am M-F. During the weekends you may book  from 8am-10pm or 10pm-8am with no restrictions. There is a 24 hour maximum total time. You are only allowed to reserve time up to two days in advance. Advance sign up starts at 10 am M-F. Users who violate these rules will have their reservation cancelled.

2. You must arrive on time and sign in in the log book. Failure to sign the log book may result in loss of access to the facility. You are expected to use the time you book. If you can't make your reserved time slot you must cancel the reservation as soon as possible. You are not allowed to give your time to someone else. If you are more that 10 minutes late your reservation is forfeited and the time becomes available on a first come first serve basis.

3. Allot enough time for your experiment and reserve your time accordingly. You are expected to 1) Use the bulk of the time you've reserved and 2) Be finished by the end of your reserved time so others don't have to wait.
