Privacy Policy:

The Library supports the right to privacy of our users. The Library is intended to be a secure and safe place to study and freely exchange ideas. Therefore the library staff is unable to disclose the location of any patron unless that patron has authorized the staff in writing to do so. It is also not within the duties of the staff to track down patrons of the library for another person. There is a notebook available at the Circulation Desk that allows patrons to leave messages to one another regarding their location. The Library will not disclose material that a person has borrowed. Nor will the library disclose the person who has borrowed certain material.

Please Remember

  • Study rooms are NOT soundproof. Please be considerate.

  • Study rooms and the equipment in them are for educational purposes. Disconnecting or tampering with equipment/cables from the TV/VCR, locking the doors, or making changes to the rooms are not permitted. Tampering with equipment or altering the rooms will be considered vandalism and may be referred to the Honor Court for possible prosecution.
