WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DO NOT COMPLY
The Library is historically a favorite place for students to study individually as well as to meet and study in groups. However, the COVID-19 pandemic requires us to reconsider the use of the space, to limit capacity, and provide distancing for the safety of everyone. It is critical in this space used by so many, that everyone adhere to these directives for your own wellbeing and for the good of those around us.
Failure to comply with the expectations above will result in a report to your college, program, or department.
