Library Guidelines

The links on the following lists are to Adobe PDF files, or Microsoft Word (.docx) documents.



Guideline A
Rev. 1988

Library Guidelines are in the main informational, with relatively few having the force of regulations, and fewer yet having the force of a contract.  When the statements fall into those latter categories, they are so identified.

For ease of use, the statements are serially numbered and dated.  Guidelines are arranged as follows:
Budgets nos. 1-19
Collections nos. 20-39
Building nos. 40-49
Library Faculty
& Other Staff
nos. 50-75
Patrons nos.  76-90
Supplements nos.  A

These guidelines have been approved and accepted by the Library Faculty and/or Library Staff, and acknowledged by the University Library Committee and the Vice President for Academic Affairs.  Each Library unit will be provided a copy of all guidelines and should retain them in their area for reference.
