Noise & Cell Phone Policy

The Library Technology Center provides an environment that condones individual and group learning/research. The noise policy is designed to promote and enhance this environment. It is the responsibility of all users of the Library Technology Center to select an area that best fits the activities they wish to pursue so as not to disturb others.

Within the Library Technology Center, areas of study are designated as follows:

Silent Study: The lower level of the library is reserved for quiet study. No talking is permitted.

Limited Talking: The area designated for limited talking is the main level of the library. Talking in normal conversational tones is permitted for group work and allows users and library staff to conduct normal library business.

Study Rooms are available on the main level of the library. There are single person study rooms as well as three group study rooms. You must sign up at the Reference Desk to use these rooms. These rooms may also be reserved up to a week in advance by signing up at the Reference Desk. Concordia students always have priority for using study rooms. If you leave the room a mess, you may lose your group study room privileges. Please remember that these rooms are not soundproof, so maintain a noise level that is considerate to other library users.

Cell Phones: The use of cell phones in the library is distracting to others. We ask that ringers be turned off or turned down while in the Library Technology Center. Cell phone conversations should be taken outside the library to the Pearson Commons.
