Library Public Policies: Emergency Procedures

What to do in an emergency

In the event that the Library must be quickly evacuated, please follow the directions of the Library staff or the campus security officers.

These rules are important to ensure your safety as well as the safety of others:

  • Leave the facilities immediately when told to do so.
  • Do not waste time saving or printing your work, sending your email, or arguing that you need to accomplish one more task.
  • Do not leave your personal belongings unattended. The Library is not responsible for any lost items.

In an emergency situation, individuals who use wheelchairs and/or have mobility impairments should assemble next to any public elevator on all 5 floors of the library. These areas have signs and are designated as an Area of Rescue Assistance. An official will come to evacuate you from the building.
