Using Library Spaces

We are committed to providing safe, comfortable spaces for research and scholarship. So that everyone can get the most out of our library spaces, all library users are expected to respect our policies.

Food & Drink

Food and drink are permitted but please clean up after yourself. Let us know about spills and messes so that we can alert UNE housekeeping.

Respect Others

Respect others’ use of the library space. This includes:

  • Observe signs about the noise level for each space and be respectful of others’ need to concentrate in silent study areas.
  • Avoid strong personal scents such as perfume and cologne as this may be distracting to or cause allergic reactions in others. We are a tobacco-free campus.
  • Avoid using the library if you feel unwell and could expose others to illness.

We will ask anyone who interferes with other patrons’ use and enjoyment of the library or otherwise engages in distracting, disruptive, or harassing behavior to modify their behavior or to leave the library.

Unattended Belongings

Do not leave personal items unattended in the library. Campus Security will remove and hold on to unattended items. UNE Libraries are not liable for lost, stolen or damaged personal property.

Service Animals

Only services animals are welcome in our library buildings. Read UNE’s policy on service and assistance animals.

Questions & Help

If you have questions about these policies, need assistance, or to report an issue contact the access services librarian for your campus.
