General Library Conduct
Patrons of the Georgia Highlands College Libraries have the right to expect:
Ensuring a pleasant and productive environment for study and research for all patrons requires that each user of the Libraries follows the Georgia Highlands College Library Conduct Policy and refrain from the following activities listed below:
Persons who commit or attempt to commit offenses enumerated in the Georgia Highlands College Student Handbook, issued by the Office of Student Life, or in the Library Conduct Policy whether a member of the College Community or not, may be asked to leave, may be subject to sanctions or expulsion, suspension, prosecution, forfeiture warning, restitution, and may be accountable to both civil authorities (city, state, or federal) and to Georgia Highlands College.
Electronic Device Conduct
Electronic devices may be a part of quiet collaboration and are permitted in the library. It is expected, however, that people using those devices will be respectful of others. To provide an optimal environment for research and study, people are asked that the devices be silenced (set to vibrate) and that cell phone calls be kept very short and as quiet as possible.
We ask that:
● Upon entering the library, electronic devices should be set to silent, no ring, or vibrate.
● When answering or initiating a call, please move to a cell phone friendly location, such as the foyer or outside the building.
● There is no restriction on text messaging and library staff may suggest text messaging as an alternative to voice messages.
Headphones are available for in library use only and must be checked-out.
