Behavior

The College has provided a beautiful facility to assist you in meeting your educational needs. Noise should be kept at a minimum so that others who are serious about their study are respected and not disturbed.  Those who ignore Library warnings may be asked to leave.  For public courtesy and the general welfare of the collection, SMOKING is not permitted.  Since food and beverages are detrimental to books and attract unwanted insects, they are prohibited EXCEPT for special occasions such as seminars and lectures.  Then they are permitted in designated areas of the Library.
