The Library building and outside entrance area serve both MIIS community members and visiting patrons. We ask all patrons to observe these policies in their use of the facilities:
Group Study Rooms
The Library has 3 group study rooms (Fletcher Jones Instructional Lab is available as a group study room when it is not being used for workshops, video or teleconferences). The rooms are for use by current MIIS students, faculty, and staff on a first-come first-served basis. Groups have priority for these rooms.
Fletcher Jones Instructional Lab
The Instructional Lab may be reserved by emailing email@example.com for the following purposes:
- Library instruction
- Library conferences and meetings
- Career workshops
- Group webinars
- Class viewing of AV materials as arranged by instructor
The second floor of the Library is a designated Quiet Zone. Patrons may talk quietly on the first floor, being aware of not disturbing library users who are trying to study. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Please silence your cell phone if you are on the second floor. You may have a quiet, brief cell phone conversation on the first floor, provided you are not disturbing other patrons.
Food and Drink
All drinks in covered containers are allowed in the Library. Please notify a staff member immediately if your drink spills so that we can clean it up. No food is allowed in the Library. Please do not leave food containers or fruit peels in the garbage or recycling bins inside the Library. Repeated violation of the food policy may result in revoking of all library privileges.
Smoking and tobacco products are prohibited in the Library.
Storage of Bags, Bicycles and other Personal Possessions
Patrons may not leave bags or other personal items at the Library Front Desk or other staff areas. Bicycles are not allowed in the Library building.
Lost & Found
Items found in the library or turned in to Library staff are kept in a lost & found box at the Front Desk. Unclaimed items will be taken to Campus Security on a regular basis. Valuable items such as wallets and passports will be taken immediately to Campus Security.
Safety and Security
Please do not leave personal belongings unattended.
Please practice safe use of electrical outlets in the Library. Laptop cords stretched across walkways are a tripping hazard. Plug laptops into outlets immediately next to where you are working.
Please notify library staff immediately if you witness a theft or are aware of any safety or security problems.
Three red Campus Security phones are located in the Library for use in case of emergency or immediate security concerns.
