The IU Libraries are a destination for students, faculty, and researchers from every part of campus and beyond. A broad spectrum of activity within the IU Libraries reflects the diversity within the academic community. The Libraries’ goal is to limit disruptions to the everyday work of students and faculty who rely on the environments the library provides, while also accommodating the diverse needs of the campus community. All library users must adhere to the following:

  • Be respectful of other library users.
  • Sleeping, offensive bodily hygiene, or behavior that results in complaints or threatens to damage library property, disruptive behavior, soliciting, roughhousing, pets, rollerblades/skates, bicycles/scooters, etc. are not permitted in the library.
  • Any person who is disrupting or whose behavior threatens to disrupt the work of others will be asked to cease the disruptive activity or may be asked to leave.
  • Under IU’s policy the library is a tobacco free environment.
  • No non-library related (i.e., for student organizations, businesses, administrative departments, etc.) signs, posters, fliers, or table tents can be distributed or posted in the Business/SPEA Information Commons. The bulletin board located outside the library's entrance doors can be used for posting.
  • Food and beverage for personal use is allowed. Group meals and large-scale food distribution is prohibited.
  • Do not leave your personal belongings unattended. The library is not responsible for theft of unattended belongings.
  • Unattended computers will be restarted after 15 minutes when other users are wanting to use library equipment.
  • Disruptive or unlawful behavior will be reported to IUPD.
