Code of Conduct
What we expect from you...
- Be considerate of other Library users – respect the rights of others to work quietly or silently:
- keep noise to a minimum in quiet study areas, and maintain silence in the silent study areas;
- ensure your mobile phone is in silent mode or switched off when you enter the Library and the URS Building - if you wish to make or receive a call go to one of the lift lobbies or to Café Libro.
- Apart from non-alcoholic drinks in lidded containers, do not eat, or drink in the Library or the URS Building (except in the café); you will be asked to remove any food or unlidded drinks on your desk. Hot food is not permitted in the building and take-away food must not be delivered to or consumed in any part of the building, including the café (even during unstaffed hours).
- Observe the rules and regulations concerning the appropriate use of IT.
- Library materials belong to everyone and you should treat them with respect. Do not write, highlight or underline in books, or deface them in any way.
- Consider others - share Library materials and spaces for the benefit of all.
- Treat Library staff with courtesy.
What we will do for you...
