Policies for all patrons:

  • Collaborative Work Areas/Quiet Study Areas: The main floor of the library and the group study rooms are set up for collaborative work and conversation. The second floor is the designated quiet area.
  • Materials Used In-House: Please do not reshelve books and journals that you have used in the library. We keep statistics on in-house use for reporting and planning purposes. If you are able, bring items to the circulation desk when you are done with them; otherwise leave them on a table or book cart.
