Information on how the library develops its collections of resources.
Food and Drink
Food and drink are allowed in all areas of the library except the computer lab on the first floor. Please be sure your drinks have a cover when working at a computer.
The library accepts gifts of money, books, and non-print materials that will enhance the Library's collection and support curriculum, research, and clinical needs of our students, faculty, and staff. See our Gifts Policy for details.
Lost and Found
The library holds lost and found items at the Circulation desk. If you lose something please contact us right away. After a couple of weeks we offer the item for free or discard it.
The library encourages group study on the first floor of the library. The second and third floors are reserved as
quiet areas so that everyone
may have access to a place to study with minimal distractions.
Cell phones are a necessary device for emergency calling. Please step outside the library to take everyday calls. Do not use the emergency doors in the back of the library as they will activate the fire alarm if opened.
Group Study Room Policy
The library provides nine private group study rooms, five of which are equipped with large monitors to facilitate group work. White boards are incorporated into the walls of these rooms. Use of the group study rooms is restricted to two or more people working together. The group study rooms are available to all on a first come, first served basis throughout the year.
Individual users are asked to use other library seating. Individual study carrels are available on the second and third floors, which are designated as quiet study areas. The carrels provide a quiet, private alternative to the first floor study tables.
The library has an alarmed gate at the Circulation desk, near the entrance. It is situated so that all patrons must pass through it when entering and exiting the library. If you should activate the alarm when you pass through the gate, please stop at the Circulation desk so that the person on duty may determine why the alarm sounded.
