Quiet Zone Policies

No talking except the occasional whisper.

Use headphones/earbuds to listen to music and videos, not your computer's speakers. Be aware that at high volumes, sound may "leak" from your headphones.

No talking on cell phones. If you need to use a cell phone, please move to the area around the stairway.

What to Do if a Quiet Zone is Too Noisy

Help us keep these zones quiet by reminding other students of their purpose.

If you feel uncomfortable approaching noisy users, you can call for backup and a library staff member will investigate. Contact a Service Desk staff member through our chat service (on this page) and let us know exactly where the offenders are and give a brief description of them.

Or phone the Service Desk at (615) 904-8533.
