Cell Phone Policy

The University Libraries permit users (faculty, students, staff, visitors) to use cell phones, in specified “cell phone friendly” locations. The locations have been determined by the impact a cell phone conversation would have on other library users in the facility.

In branch libraries, library users wishing to use cell phones are asked to move into the hallway directly outside the front entrance. In large library buildings, signs are posted directing library users to “cell phone friendly” locations. Library users are encouraged to inquire at the library service desk for specific locations.
