Policy Statement: While Maxwell Library welcomes patrons of all ages, visitors with children should be aware that the library is housed in a busy, multi-use facility. Classrooms, faculty and administrative offices, as well as various service units can all be found in the building. Multiple entry and exits points are located across the site.
Because the library’s primary constituency is the students, faculty and staff of the university, along with visiting researchers from other institutions, we provide a wide range of materials—books, DVDs, journals and other resources—that express a variety of perspectives. Some content and illustrations may be inappropriate for use by children.
Concern for the safety and well-being of children, recognition of the needs of the BSU community, as well as proper stewardship of library resources prompts the following:
Please note that the University’s Responsible Use of Information Technology policy applies to BSU students, faculty, staff and all other users. You can review the policy at http://it.bridgew.edu/Policy/ResponsibleUse.cfm.
Library staff members are not expected to act as police officers nor are they expected to search for accompanying adults or determine the ages of children. Any problems we encounter will be reported to Campus Police.
