Patron Code of Conduct
The primary goal of the Winthrop University Library is to support the instructional and research activities of the Winthrop University academic community. As a security measure, a Winthrop University identification card or a scheduled appointment is required to enter Dacus Library. The Library must create a safe and secure environment in which to provide its services. To ensure that this environment remains as safe as possible for Winthrop's students, faculty, and staff, Dacus Library has established the following Patron Code of Conduct.
All Library patrons in Dacus Library are expected to act maturely, responsibly, courteously, and to be respectful of the library staff and other patrons. All Winthrop University students must abide by the Student Conduct Code of Winthrop University and all library patrons are expected to abide by the Winthrop University Policy on the Appropriate Use of Information Technology Resources.
The following activities are also considered inappropriate and anyone engaged in these activities will be requested to leave the building. Any refusal to do so will result in the Winthrop University Police Department being contacted.
