The Chapman University Leatherby Libraries strives to provide an atmosphere that is welcoming to students, faculty, staff, and other library users that is conducive to both collaborative and quiet study. To support quiet study, the Leatherby Libraries provides designated quiet study areas at the south end of both the second and third floors. These are designated with signage.
Appropriate behavior is expected in all areas of the library. This includes quiet conversations, muted or ear-phoned audio players, and quiet group study.
Please be considerate of others when using a cell phone throughout the building. Please mute the ring tone, keep conversations short and your voice lowered. If you need to have an extended conversation, please go outside of the library to do so. Cell phone use is not permitted in library classrooms and in the Sala and Aron Samueli Holocaust Memorial Library.
It is the right and responsibility of all library users to enforce this quiet study policy. If you are uncomfortable doing so, you may report the issue to a library staff member at the nearest service desk. Library staff will contact Public Safety to escort library users out of the building when necessary.
