Food and Beverages in the Library
Absolutely no food or drink is allowed in the reading and public areas of the library.

The library provides a lunch room (on the ground floor near the entrance to the Periodicals Department).

Food and drink are incompatible with the library's mission of preserving needed teaching and research materials. Spills and food stains cause rapid deterioration of paper materials, resulting in their loss and significant additional costs to the library for their replacement. An even more serious problem is that food and beverages attract insects and other creatures that infest the books and periodicals and damage paper and glue. The university has gone to considerable effort and expense to provide a library environment that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also provides optimum conditions of temperature and humidity for preservation of resources. We need the assistance of all patrons and staff to help keep the the library in top condition.
