The following is a list of PDF documents that outline the College's policy on academic integrity:
ITS provides information regarding acceptable computer use on campus (which includes the Library):
In order to provide an environment conducive to research and quiet study, the Brooklyn College Library prohibits the following activities:
Silent cell phone activity is permitted everywhere. Please switch ringers and notifications off or to vibrate. If you need to take or make a quick call, please keep your voice low. If you are in an extended conversation on your cell phone, please move to any public stairwell, the areas around elevators, the Circulation area or the hallway behind the Reserve Reading Room.
These rules are important to insure your safety as well as the safety of others:
Food and beverages can damage library collections and equipment with spills and messes, and they attract rodents and other unwanted pests. Food odors and sounds are also annoying to other users.
No food is allowed in the Brooklyn College Library. All drinks must have lids. No eating or drinking (including water) is permitted in the Archives and Special Collections Reading Room. Only water is permitted at public computers.
The Lost & Found drawer at the Reference Desk should be emptied nightly by the CA on duty until closing. Items in the drawer should be brought to the Circulation Desk. Lost and found items are eventually removed from the Circulation Desk and brought to the Security Office.
No photographs, videotapes or films may be reproduced, distributed, or sold without permission from the Library. Please contact Professor Miriam Deutch at 718-951-5221 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
In compliance with the campus-wide policy on smoking, patrons are prohibited from smoking anywhere inside the Library or any other Brooklyn College building.
For those who wish to smoke, canisters are located at major entrances where cigarettes can be extinguished before entering college buildings. Your cooperation in promoting the health and well-being of the entire Brooklyn College community is vital and very much appreciated.
Students requiring test proctoring services are advised to consult with the institution for which they are taking the test regarding arrangements.
The front entrance of the Library is wheelchair accessible. (There is an automatic door to the left of the front door.) All levels of the Library, classrooms, and auditorium comply with ADA guidelines for accessibility. All tables in the Library are ADA compliant. Adjustable height tables are located on the Lower Level at carrels 0G10 (opposite Periodicals Compact Shelving), 0D2 & 3 (opposite Government Documents and Periodicals Compact Shelving), and 0F2 (in the Current Periodicals Reading Room); on the first floor at carrels 1D19 & 20 (opposite the public elevators), 1H2 (opposite Special Collections on the first floor) and Table 1 in the Reserve Reading Room; on the second floor at 2C38 (in front of the New Media Center Desk), 2C6 (near the Music Service Desk and New Media Service Desk), and 2A1 (in front of the Octagonal Reading Room); and in every classroom in the Library.
To access the Multipurpose Room, Library Administration offices, fourth floor group study rooms (415, 416, 417), and Library staff lounge please call ahead to (718) 951-5342 for assistance with the wheelchair lift. Or you can take the staff elevator to the 4th floor which allows for ramp access to all rooms on the fourth floor.
