Also, be sure to log out of your student account when you stop using a library computer, but don`t turn off the computer completely. This saves your librarians the hassle of restarting the entire computer system. As part of its mission to ensure open access to information and the exchange of ideas, Michigan State University Libraries sponsor a number of programs in its research libraries. The goal of these programs is to provide the opportunity to listen to and experiment with presentations and discussions on current and interesting topics with participants representing a wide range of perspectives. All members of the MSU community are invited to participate in library programs, subject to occupancy restrictions and ticket requirements, if applicable. In order to maintain an environment conducive to the purpose of the programs, all participants must comply with the following regulations: Although all libraries have posted rules, there are many unspoken rules that you must follow in a school library so as not to be rude. The magazine “Book/loose edition” can be distributed overnight to library members. This is only from the Reference section after 20.00 – 21.00. The next day before 10:00 am, borrowed materials must only be returned in this section, if there is a delay on the part of the member, the respective member cannot be borrowed overnight. The number of documents that members can borrow at a time is only one. There is a fine of Rs.5 for delaying the recommissioning of one pound per day. Card I should be mandatory for entry to the library.
The borrower must compensate for the loss by replacing the library materials with the same or most recent edition. In case of unavailability of the material, the actual cost of the book/material or Rs.200.00, depending on the high amount, will be reimbursed by the borrower. No visitor or guest may use the library without being an appropriate member of the library. Visitors are charged for the use of their library as Rs.50.00 for students/scientific researchers and Rs.200.00 for others. Students/fellows must present their university/ID card. Another basic principle of library etiquette is to answer all the calls you receive outside the library building. No matter how quietly you think you`re talking, phone calls will be a distraction in the library. The volume of your phone conversation contrasts sharply with the silence of the library environment. So if you need to answer the call, make sure you do it outside. Although the rules specific to each secondary school vary depending on each school`s library, many rules remain the same in all secondary school libraries. The rules of the high school library include: no food, return books on time, be calm and respectful, do not lend books to others, do not write in books, put books back in place, and do not run.
The rules in university libraries are very similar, although many allow you to eat and drink. Reserve books are only issued to students for overnight stays during the examination period. Drives must not deface, mark, cut, mutilate, or damage library assets in any way. If someone is found doing this, they will be charged the full replacement cost of the resource. University campus libraries have very similar rules to high school libraries, but some are different. There are many rules in high school and college libraries. Still, most of them have a lot in common, so it should be relatively easy to get used to the rules in a brand new library. If you chose a book but decided not to borrow it from the library, put it back where you found it. If you don`t remember its original location, take it to a librarian and ask where it`s going. Don`t leave the book on the table when you leave. It`s very disrespectful to librarians, and it`s not their job to clean up others. Although many rules are the same for the high school library, they vary slightly depending on the library.
If you`re not sure what your high school library`s rules are, ask one of the librarians what they are. Many high school libraries have specific rules against lending borrowed library books from your friends. Often, library books tend to get lost if they constantly change hands. These friends can easily borrow the book themselves once it has been returned to the library. Ultimately, you are responsible for all library books borrowed in your name, whether in your possession or belonging to your friend. So if you lend a bookbook to a friend and they damage it, expect you to pay for their actions. Drinks and food are not allowed in the library. College libraries have rules that require you to have your student ID with you because you`ll need it to borrow books or materials. In addition, some college libraries require you to use your student ID to register in the library before entering.
However, not all libraries on university campuses adopt this rule. Some of the rules of college campus libraries are different from the rules of the high school library: Although many libraries don`t have explicit rules against touching signs and posters on library walls, you should still leave them. Alteration of the décor of the library can lead to accidental damage. Conversations and discussions disrupt the atmosphere of the library. That is why everyone is called to keep a dignified silence. If a discussion is necessary, the common room should be used for this purpose. If you have to leave, even if it`s just for a few minutes, take all your stuff with you. While this may seem tedious, it ensures that none of your belongings are broken, damaged, or stolen. Ultimately, this general rule of the library is in your interest and in the interest of the library. Of course, if you`re studying with a friend and need to leave for a few minutes, you can ask them to keep an eye on your stuff while you`re away. But remember, this is the only time you should leave your stuff unattended.
If you leave a table in a bookcase, be sure to tidy up your chair before you leave. While this is considered a common courtesy in many places, it is an unspoken rule in libraries. Some people will walk around reading in the library. As you can imagine, they are not so aware of what is right in front of them. As a result, they can accidentally hit your chair if you don`t push it. Also, aisles in libraries, especially school libraries, tend to be very narrow, so if you don`t plug in your chair, you make it harder for others to walk around, which is rude. It should go without saying, but if you`re eating at the library, be sure to clean your space and brush all the crumbs. No one wants to walk into the library and sit at a table with crumbs, especially if they have a food allergy. So if you`re eating in a library, clean it up. Another unspoken rule of the library is that you shouldn`t leave your stuff where people can fall on it, even if it`s at your feet. If you place your belongings near your feet or on sidewalks, store them away from high-traffic areas. This habit not only protects others, but also your expensive items such as laptops and tablets from serious damage.
Also, high school libraries have a rule that you should be calm and respectful of others when you`re at the library. This does not mean that conversations are completely forbidden. You can still talk to your friends in the library, but you need to be careful about your noise level to be polite to those around you. Parents, guardians and/or guardians are solely responsible for the safety and behaviour of their children. We inform you that children, like all library users, are required to comply with the “General Rules and Regulations” of the library and that a child who violates these rules may be asked to leave the library rooms.
