Library User Conduct Code

  • All library users are expected to respect the rights of others to have a safe campus environment conducive to learning.  The library, in particular, is promised to students as a quiet place for study and research on campus.

     

  • Students, faculty, staff, and members of the community are encouraged to use the resources and services of the Shelton State Libraries, to ask for assistance when they need help in locating or using library materials, and to offer suggestions for improving services or for additions to library collections.

     

     

  • Library users are expected to speak softly at all times to maintain a quiet environment for study and research.

     

     

  • Cell phone ringers must be disabled and all phone conversations must not be disruptive.

     

     

  • Food and drink are not allowed in the library.

     

     

  • Social conversation and recreational activities should be conducted outside the library.

     

     

  • Library users must be aware that their conversation and language may be overheard by others and must take care to avoid the use of profane or vulgar language, as indicated in the ‘Student Conduct Code’ published in the college catalog.

     

     

  • Library users are expected to comply with requests or directions from the library staff.

     

     

  • When possible, groups should use study rooms so that discussions will not distract other library users.

     

     

  • The library is not designed as a place for children but for adult college students.  According to college policy, children must be under the supervision of parents or guardians at all times.  Children may not be left unattended in the library.

     

     

  • Library users have open access to all library resources, including the Internet.  Library users should be aware that some resources accessed or displayed may be offensive to others.  The College’s policy on  “Computer Resources Use”  applies to all computer and network use, including game-playing and recreational uses.

     

     

  • Harassment of any kind is not permitted by the College in the library or elsewhere.

     

     

  • Any activity that interferes with the operation and effectiveness of the library, the College network, or computer resources is considered a violation of the ‘Student Conduct Code’ published in the college catalog.

     

     

  • Library users who violate the ‘Student Conduct Code’ or College policies published in the ‘Student Handbook’ section of the College catalog are subject to disciplinary procedures or loss of privileges.
