Please keep these usage policies in mind when studying. Rooms must be kept clean: All trash and personal items should be removed and disposed of upon departure. Rooms should not be left unattended during use: Unattended personal items are subject to removal by library staff. Study Rooms are not soundproof: Please keep group discussion to a reasonable noise level.
