A valid SHU ID card or a visitor's pass, to be worn after guests sign the University Library Visitor's Book, must be available and/or visible for presentation to a member of the University Public Safety and/or to University Libraries personnel, at all times.
Persons using the University Libraries may be under video surveillance.
Persons using the University Libraries must not create a disturbance or exhibit behavior that interferes in any manner with normal, or any other person's, use of the University Libraries.
