All library users (students, community users, faculty and staff) are required to conduct themselves in a responsible and civil manner, consistent with the university's mission, policies, and regulations and in compliance with federal, provincial, and municipal laws. Library users will be held accountable for their actions whether acting alone or in a group.
Library users are required to identify themselves to university employees by providing valid personal identification whenever such information is relevant to the legitimate pursuit of the duties of that employee.
We strive to provide a quiet, respectful, and pleasant environment conducive to learning. Library users are expected to refrain from conduct that will disrupt this environment, or impair the use of library resources and facilities.
Prohibited conduct includes, but is not limited to the following:
All student conduct in the library must comply with the Safe Student Learning Community Policy #204 and all other university policies.
For minor incidents of disruptive behaviour, students may be required to leave the area. If the misconduct is deemed more serious, the incident will be reported to the University Librarian and Campus Security Services for review under the Safe Student Learning Community Policy #204.
Community Users are also expected to refrain from the types of misconduct outlined in the Safe Student Learning Community Policy #204 and will be held to the same standards of conduct that apply to students. Community users must also comply with all other related policies listed above.
All incidents of misconduct will be reported to the University Librarian and Director of Security.
Penalties imposed by the university for misconduct may include (but not be limited to) one or more of the following: a verbal or written reprimand; restitution or other ameliorative measures; loss of library privileges; exclusion from specified areas of the university; being barred from the university campuses.
Conduct of sufficiently serious nature may be reported to the local police authority having jurisdiction if deemed appropriate by library staff and/or campus security personnel.
