Appropriate Behavior Policy
Members of the campus community and guests can expect to be treated in a courteous and professional manner by Walter W. Stiern Library employees. In turn, patrons are expected to engage in behavior that does not interfere with student learning and that does not result in improper use of library facilities. CSUB is committed to creating and maintaining a safe working, learning, and social environment for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors which is free from violence, threats, intimidation, hostile acts, and disruptive behavior.
The Library is not to be used as a place to sleep; aisles and walking spaces are to remain freely passable at all times; placing feet on furniture or sitting on the arms of chairs diminishes the appearance and structural integrity of the furniture.
Talking in the Library is allowed at low levels, but should not disturb others. The Dezember Reading Room and the 3d and 4th floors are designated quiet areas.
CSUB has a zero tolerance for potentially violent or violent acts against any member of the campus community. Theft, attempted theft, or vandalism of any Library materials or property will be reported to Campus Police for appropriate action.
The use of tobacco products, including but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco, snuff and pipes is not permitted in the library building.
Please report any disruptive activity or other problems to Library staff at the Check Out Desk on the main floor, or call Campus Police at Ext. 2111 from any phone in the Library.
Dean, University Library
