William H. Hannon Library space use policy
The spaces listed on the William H. Hannon Library Space reservations chart may be reserved for non-library use. This policy outlines and defines the guidelines and restrictions for reserving and using these spaces.
To meet the mission, goals, and objectives of the library, priority is given to library meetings, library instruction sessions, and library events.
The William H. Hannon Library is an academic research library first and foremost. This mission requires an environmentally controlled space for the collections, instruction rooms for librarians engaged in teaching, and patron space for individuals in contemplative, quiet study as well as groups participating together in class assignments and projects. Other uses of the library's spaces are ancillary to this core mission. Thus, the library reserves the right to refuse a reservation if the use would create inappropriate noise and/or activity, such as, but not limited to, loud music and other entertainment, filming, photography, performances, cooking, groups of young children, and overwhelming large size or scope of the planned function.
