The Wayne College Library is committed to providing a safe, pleasant and productive environment for both patrons and library employees. We welcome users and visitors whose needs for use reflect the educational mission of the library. We value respectful human interactions and the stewardship and protection of our information resources and physical facilities. We ask that our patrons support these values by demonstrating positive behaviors while using any library at The University of Akron.
The Wayne College Library Staff is charged with:
The following are examples of behaviors that, because they are illegal, are not permitted:
Other behaviors, while not illegal, do violate the communal expectations for use of the Wayne College Library shared resources, and are, therefore, not permitted. Examples include but are not limited to:
Patrons who feel threatened by the behavior of others should immediately report the threat to the University of Akron Police x2911. They should report other concerns to library employees.
Library employees have the authority to bring inappropriate behavior, as defined by these and other rules, to the attention of the individual demonstrating such behavior. If that person will not alter his or her behavior, that individual will be asked to leave library property. Violators of this policy may be subject to criminal prosecution and/or university discipline in accordance with The University of Akron's policy on campus conduct (OAC 3359-40-01).
The Wayne College Library has adapted relevant portions of The University of Akron Libraries Acceptable Behavior Policy.
