Security / Other information
Never leave any belongings unattended in the rooms, as you are solely responsible for your personal belongings
For security reasons, door windows must remain uncovered
Keep key with you at all times -- the room locks automatically when door is closed
If you lock the key inside the room, please go back to the desk where you checked it out. A back-up key will be checked out to you and must be returned within 5 minutes.
These rooms are intended for individual quiet study. You may have two people in the room, but conversations must be quiet. Make cell phone calls in the lobby stairwell. Use earphones for personal music devices and keep volume low.
For confidentiality reasons, library staff cannot direct others to rooms you have checked out.
All users must follow the Code of Conduct.
