The Masland Library is committed to creating a clean, comfortable environment conducive to reflection, study, and intellectual pursuit. With this in mind, reasonable limits are in effect regarding the use of the library building. Patrons not in compliance with these guidelines may be asked to leave.
The Masland Library is open to all students, faculty, and staff. Due to our open campus policy we also allow visitors from the community and alumni to use our collection. All persons using the library should be able to show valid forms of identification if asked (acceptable ones include: student ID or official state identification).
The following is expected of all those using the library:
*Cairn University is not responsible for lost or stolen property.
Any persons displaying inappropriate behavior will be given a warning; if they persist they will be asked to leave. Unacceptable uses of the facilities include, but are not limited to, the following:
Why can I not move chairs and tables?
The library staff has thought through the space, including not blocking the collection or aisles. In addition, our building was not designed for large group work/loud noises as noise travels throughout the building and disturbs those looking for a quiet space. Because of this, tables and chairs cannot be moved.
When you move something you are doing at least one of the following: blocking access to a resource, making it impossible to access an emergency exit, or taking seating away from someone needing a specific table.
Repeated disregard for the library policies will result in being asked to leave the building and the loss library privileges, including but not limited to inability to use study rooms, checkout materials, and/or use of the library. In addition, a report will be filed with the Office of Safety and Security and submitted to the Dean of Students.
