Library resources, services, and study spaces are an important part of the learning environment at the College. It is very important that Library users respect the rights and privacy of others while in the Library. Disruptive or unacceptable behavior may result in patrons being asked to leave the Library. Patrons may also be subject to other action in accordance with College policies and/or state and federal law. Library and Learning Center staff reserve the right to determine the appropriateness of any behavior. As part of the College’s Student Code of Rights and Responsibilities, and in alignment with the College's Mission Statement, the Library will strive to meet the needs for student access in the following Core Abilities to "think critically" and "communicate effectively."
