Library Policies: Conduct

This guide outlines policies regarding library use and library materials.


General Conduct

The GGU Libraries strive to provide a welcoming, comfortable and safe environment for study and research.

Any behavior which is deemed to be disruptive to the orderly operation of the libraries is not permitted and can lead to loss of library access privileges.

Food & Drink

Food and drink are permitted in the libraries, but under no circumstances should consumption of food or drink interfere with the ability of others to conduct their work.

Cell Phones and other devices

Cell Phones and other devices are permitted in the libraries as long as they do not disrupt the ability of others to conduct their work.

Noise Zones

The main level (Business Library) is zoned for quiet conversation and collaboration. The lower two levels (Law Library) are quiet zones. All conversations are expected to be reasonable, as determined by library staff, and should not be loud enough to disrupt the efforts of individuals or groups to conduct their work. It is imperative that respect for these zones be observed. Study rooms for student group use are available upon request at the Law Library service desk
