Proper use of collections and facilities
- To maintain the library collection in good condition, users should handle Library materials carefully. Books and other Library materials must not be mutilated or defaced. This includes underlining and annotating in pencil.
- Users must pay full replacement cost for damage to Library property. Users are liable to pay full replacement or repair fees for damage to any other Library property (including equipment, furniture, items displayed, or other property), or damage that is a result of evident negligence.
- Computers are provided for Library users to have access to information for the purposes of research, study, and learning. Users should use online resources responsibly. Users should not use computers to play games or to view obscene materials.
- Copyright law should be strictly observed by all library users when making copies of library materials, including scanning and photocopying. Please ask for guidance on how much you may lawfully copy under our educational copyright licences.
- Books (and, for staff, journals) must be issued to you before you attempt to carry them through the exit turnstiles. Under no circumstances may books or journals otherwise be removed from the Library. Attempting to take away Library stock without it first being issued comprises a disciplinary offence and might even be considered theft.
