Non-disruptive food and drink is allowed in the library, but please be courteous about how your food may affect others who are using the library. If your food is considered disruptive by library staff (i.e., loud or smelly), you may be asked to take your food outside. Drinks without secure lids are not permitted at the computer stations.
The library is intended to be a quiet study area for all users; conversations should be limited and at "library volume." There is a group study room that can be used for people who wish to talk. Library staff will give a noisy patron one verbal warning; if the noise continues, the patron will be asked to leave.
Cell phone conversations are not allowed in the library. Patrons must exit the library to use their cell phones.
The Group Study Room can be reserved in person; you can sign up for a time slot using the calendar posted on the Group Study Room door.
The following policies govern the use of the Group Study Room:
NOTICE: failure to follow these policies, or other applicable library policies, may result in a temporary or permanent suspension of access to these group study rooms.The goal of the OCOM Library staff is that this room will be a clean and pleasant place to study. If you find that a room was left in poor condition by the previous occupants, report this immediately to the library staff.
