Building Use Policy
In order to protect library materials and facilities, and to provide users with a safe space conducive to research, learning, and quiet study, the following policies and guidelines apply in all Library areas. More...
Privacy Information and Your Library Record
The University Library limits the collection of personal information to what is relevant and necessary in order to conduct business. More...
The library collection is protected by an electronic security system. Items that have not been checked out will cause the system's alarm to ring. A security report is taken each time the alarm sounds. Please be sure that all library materials have been properly checked out before attempting to leave the library.
A Security Guard and Library Service Monitors (LSMs) patrol the library. They are responsible for observing and monitoring the activity of the library. Your cooperation in working with them is appreciated, as they are working to maintain the safety and security of all library users.
Guard your possessions while in the library! Leaving possessions unattended, even for a moment, may invite a thief. If you are the victim of a theft or other illegal activity, or you see suspicious or illegal activity, please report it to the Circulation desk. We will assist in notifying the police and taking a report of the incident. Your help in keeping the library safe for all users is appreciated.
