  • Food and drink are permitted if you keep them away from the library books, and you need to clean up after yourself. 
  • Please adhere to the technology policies when using your computer in the library. Students cannot use computers in a way that is disruptive or harmful to others, or in a way that invades each others privacy. 
  • Students must use headphones; you can ask the librarian for a pair if you do not have your own.


You can check out materials either using the self-checkout computer or with the librarian on duty.

  • The loan period for materials is 3 weeks, if you need longer please renew your materials with the librarian.
  • You can return your materials to the librarian directly or by placing them on the cart next to the desk.
