Featured Resource

North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation Transboundary Agreements Infobase. This resource provides access to agreements and treaties on transboundary environmental cooperation in North America. You can search for agreements by subject, agreement name, or the parties to the agreements. There are links to the full text of the agreements. In addition to country to country agreements, there are agreements between states, states and provinces, and regional and local authorities. The commission was created by Canada, Mexico, and the United States under the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation.

Library Suggestion Box

A suggestion box is available in the Library.

The box is mounted to the wall on your right as you enter the Library on the 9th floor. All suggestions, comments, and complaints will be answered as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours of receipt. Both suggestions and replies will be posted on a bulletin board to the left of the box.

You are not limited to the suggestion box! Please send me an E-mail to: Keith Stiverson (KSTIVERS), give me a call (x65610), or come to see me in room 871 if there is anything you want to discuss about the Library or its services.

Keith Ann Stiverson, Library Director

Consideration for Others in the Library

Please try to maintain a quiet atmosphere in the Library for the benefit of all those who are studying around you. If you need to work in a group, study rooms are available. You may use any unreserved study room, or make a reservation at the Service Desk with your current ID.

Study Room Policy

Study rooms are for group study by IIT students using the Downtown Campus Libraries' resources. You may reserve a room in advance at the Service Desk with your current ID.

Library Cell Phone Policy

Before entering the Library, cell phones must be turned off. In addition, you must leave the Library before using your cell phone. We have been inundated with complaints about the disturbances caused by cell phone usage in the Library, which has forced us to adopt this policy.

For those of you with an emergency situation who must be reachable by cell phone, you can leave your phone on ONLY if it gets your attention by some method other than ringing. If you have one that vibrates quietly or uses a blinking light, you can leave it on while you are in the Library. This exception does not change the requirement that you leave the Library to use your phone.

Library Food and Drink Policy

1) Drinks are permitted, except in the computer labs, if they are in a reusable hard plastic or metal container with a permanent lid that does not have to be removed to drink. Water is allowed in a standard water bottle with a securable cap.

Not allowed are: cans, styrofoam or paper cups, soft drinks or juice in bottles.

2) Food is not permitted in the Library.

3) No food or drinks of any kind are allowed in the computer labs.

Please Guard Your Valuables

Personal belongings must be carried with you each time you leave your study area. Theft of wallets is a recurring problem. If your belongings are discovered unattended, security personnel may remove them to a safer location.
