Library Building Use Policy

Food is not allowed in the Library. Beverages are allowed only in cups with screw-on lids.

Noise from conversation or cell phones must be kept at a low level so as not to disturb other patrons. Any prolonged conversation should take place in the corner area beyond the computer bar or in one of the study rooms. Library patrons who are disruptive will be asked to leave.

A phone for outgoing calls is available for patron use in the corner area beyond the computer bar. Library staff phones are not to be used by patrons. Library staff will not take messages for students.

The three study rooms are primarily for student use/ group study use. They may be reserved in advance by contacting Library staff or be used when not occupied during normal Library hours.

The IAIA Library provides an adult, unsupervised environment for the purpose of academic research and support of the college’s curriculum. Children will not be monitored or supervised by the staff; therefore the safety of unattended children cannot be guaranteed. Consequently children under the age of 15 who are not IAIA students must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or adult guardian at all times. Children who are disruptive will be asked to leave the library.

Unattended belongings are not the responsibility of the Library and staff cannot guarantee the security of these items. Items left at closing time will be put in the Library Lost and Found and may be identified for return the following day. Security will not open the Library after closing for students to retrieve their belongings.
