Library Rights and Responsibilities

Users of the library have a right to:

  • A library environment free of disruptive activity.
  • Confidential access to library materials.
  • Library materials that are complete and not defaced.
  • Quiet areas for individuals to study and to engage in research.

Ensuring a pleasant and productive environment for study and research for all users requires that each user of the library refrain from the following activities:

  • Talking and making loud noise.
  • Smoking.
  • Cutting, defacing, ripping or tearing pages from any library materials.
  • Mutilating or destroying records, compact disks, software or other library media material.
  • Removing library books, magazines, other materials or library property without proper library check-out.
  • Soliciting in the library.

Misuse of the library, whether by theft or mutilation of library materials, or by interference with the study and research activities of library users, shows disrespect for the rights of members of the college community.
