Telephone and Cell Phone Use

Library patrons are encouraged to practice appropriate cell phone etiquette when using their personal cell phones in the library facilities. This includes setting their cell phones to vibrate and, as much as reasonably possible, refraining from carrying on extended conversations in close proximity to students who are studying or otherwise engaged in research activities. The library staff does reserve the right to ask patrons to take cell phone conversations outside of the library facilities if it is deemed that such conversations are having a disruptive effect.

Telephones located in the library are business phones. (At AGTS, a courtesy phone has been provided in the student lounge for personal calls.) Library patrons cannot be paged or called to a Circulation Desk telephone except in emergencies. Messages may be accepted and communicated to the patron.
