Revision History


Daniel A. Reed Library is committed to providing an environment that is conducive to study as well as welcoming to all users. Developed in response to concerns from students, faculty, and visitors about the increased noise level in the Library due to cell phone use, please respect others' need for quiet and observe these guidelines for cell phone use in the Library. When you enter the Library, turn off the ringer. Be considerate of those studying around you. Keep your conversations short, and your voice lowered when using cell phones. If you need to have an extended conversation, go outside the Library to do so. If you leave the Library to take or make a call, please be sure to take your valuable belongings with you. Please refrain from all conversations in the following locations designated as "Silent Study Areas": 2nd and 3rd floors in the Carnahan-Jackson Center and the Library Classroom. If you wish to report inappropriate cell phone use, contact a Library staff member. The Library reserves the right to ask patrons to leave the building if they are using cell phones in restricted areas or are disturbing others in any area of the Library.
