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.

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
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
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.
