***Students cannot graduate with any outstanding overdue or unpaid materials on their records.***
Please be kind to your fellow students and your librarians by returning your materials on time!
Meeting Room Reservations
Students may reserve library meeting rooms for up to two hours at either campus for group study by filling out a Meeting Room Reservation Request located on the Library Moodle site. Reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis. Confirmed reservations may be viewed on the Computer Lab and Meeting Room Calendar on the Library Moodle site. If the students are unable for any reason to keep the reservation made, or will be late to come to the library, they need to contact the library staff at the library where the reservation is being held as soon as possible. If the students do not contact the library staff and do not arrive by thirty minutes after the time of the reservation, the reservation will be cancelled and the room will be made available to others.
The Library Department adheres to the South College Computer Code of Ethics. Any use of computer workstations in the Library will be governed by this institutional policy. Users violating the policy will be referred to the Dean of Student Affairs for disciplinary procedures.
