A Reminder About Security in the Library!

Just a reminder from the Library staff to please protect your valuables while studying. Most thefts of personal property in public places are usually the result of an opportunity the victim gives the offender...like leaving your stuff unattended. Eliminate the opportunity, and you can eliminate the crime!

If you see someone acting suspiciously in the Library, please alert the Library staff or Security.


Featured Resource: CIA World Factbook

The Central Intelligence Agency’s World Factbook is a venerable publication with a long history of providing in depth information on every country and territory across the globe.  Recently, the CIA announced the end of the print Factbook, and on June 8, 2009, the CIA unveiled its upgraded online version of the publication.

While the original online version was merely an online representation of the print edition, the online version is now updated at least every two weeks.  Country-specific data is updated and enhanced, and falls within the following categories: Introduction; Geography; People; Government; Economy; Communications; Transportation; Military; and Transnational Issues.  New to the enhanced version: in each country’s profile, ranked categories show that country’s rank within the category, with a link to the rankings list. 

Regional maps have also been enhanced and photographs have been added for over 100 of the 266 entries.

CIA World Factbook is a free resource available on the Internet at https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/index.html


General Library Policies

Library Rules

While using the Downtown Campus Library, please observe the following rules and polices:

Guard Your Valuables

Please guard your valuables when using the library! Recently, two wallets were reportedly taken out of student backpacks which were left unattended.  Thefts of this nature are usually the result of an opportunity the victim gives the offender.  Eliminate the opportunity, and you can eliminate the crime!  Please protect your valuables.

Courteous Behavior

Please respect the rights of others who wish to study and work in the Library. Keep your study area neat and clean. Walk quietly through study areas. Don’t block pathways with your laptop cord (plug it in under your table). Erase the whiteboard/chalkboard in your study room when you leave. Don’t move the furniture around. Keep your feet on the floor, not on the chairs. Generally, treat others the way you wish to be treated. 

Food and Drink

You may bring any drink into the Library. We ask, however, that you pick up after yourself and use the appropriate recycling bin. Food is never allowed, so don’t bring it into the Library.

Noise & Cell Phones

Please respect the other patrons in the Library and whisper quietly if you need to communicate with others in the library. Please do not use your cell phone in the Library, computer lab, or study rooms. If you need to make a call, take your cell phone outside the Library or into one of the stairwells. Keep noise levels down on personal music devices, and always wear your headphones. If noise in the Library is bothering you, inform the Circulation Desk.

Unattended Belongings

Please do not leave your personal belongings unattended. The Library is open to the public and thefts, while not frequent, have occurred. Belongings that are left unattended will be taken by security. If you are missing any personal items, please tell the Circulation Desk on the 9th floor as soon as possible so that security can be notified.

Use of Library Materials

Please handle all library materials with care. Refrain from writing in or marking-up library materials. If you cannot reach a book on a shelf, please ask a member of the library staff for assistance. Move unwanted library materials to a re-shelving area or return to the Circulation Desk. Do not “hide” library materials in the stacks. If a book that you are using is damaged, please let a member of the staff know; most of the time, we can fix the problem. Please remember that library materials are for the use of everyone.

Other Reminders

  • No pets are allowed in the Library.

  • Persons under the age of 18 should be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times.

  • Please do not disturb the “Emergency Heat” switches located throughout the Library.

  • Members of the public who do not follow these rules may be asked to leave and/or barred from the Library; students may be referred to their academic dean for appropriate disciplinary action.

  • If you observe suspicious behavior, please contact a member of the staff immediately.
