Using Library Spaces

There are additional policies in place to accommodate use of the libraries during COVID-19.

The UNE is home to two libraries, one on each Maine campus:

So everyone can get the most out of our library spaces, we ask that you respect our policies.

Food & Drink

Food and drink are permitted in the libraries, but we ask you to be respectful of others by cleaning up any messes or spills and avoiding food with strong odors.

Unattended Belongings

Campus Security will remove and hold on to any personal belongings left unattended in the library.

Noise Levels

Observe signs about the noise level for each space and be respectful of others’ need to concentrate in silent study areas. Library staff will ask you to adjust your volume or move to a conversation zone if we receive complaints.


Library staff reserve the right to ask any person causing any disturbance to leave the library. We will call Campus Security or the local police department to deal with incidences of vandalism, theft, acts of violence or threatening or abusive behavior.

As always, if you have questions contact us!
