Things to Remember When Using the Lamar Memorial Library

The Lamar Memorial Library Supports Academic Endeavors

To help provide a pleasant, productive environment, we expect students to respect the following standards while in the library:

  • Speak quietly
  • Respect the “no talking” quiet zones
  • Limit phone use
  • Set cell phones to “vibrate”
  • Use texting instead of voice to communicate
  • Do not use speaker phone or video phone apps (Skype, FaceTime, etc.)
  • Wrap up calls within a few seconds or take them in the lobby, stairwells, or outside
  • Use headphones to listen to audio
  • Check out headphones at the desk if you do not have your own
  • Set the volume so others cannot hear the sound
  • The Library, like all campus buildings, is a smoke, vape, and tobacco free zone (Community Standard 16)
  • Enjoy beverages in sturdy, "spill-proof" containers
  • Eat snacks in study areas — away from computers, printers, copiers, and stored books
  • Please eat meals outside the library
  • Any food that is hot, comes in a takeout container, or requires utensils to eat is a meal
  • Pizza, burgers, fries, sandwiches, sushi, salads, fruit, and ice cream are examples of food to eat elsewhere

Leave no trace by leaving workspaces clean and ready for the next person to enjoy

We appreciate your cooperation in upholding these community standards
