The Irene duPont Library is the School’s most important academic resource. The mission of the Library is to encourage academic excellence by providing service and instruction to the School community, to collaborate with faculty in designing learning opportunities with resources, information and technology, to teach students to become effective, and discriminating users of ideas and information.
All library materials (books, magazines, videos and technological equipment) must be checked out through the automated system in order to be used outside the Library. Please be prompt in returning library materials. A notice will be given when an item becomes overdue. Students will receive three marks per overdue item, per day. All material returned to the Library must be returned to the book-return slot or to the librarian at the desk.
Some obvious but important rules to observe are as follows:
- Maintain library quiet at all times, i.e., no loud or continuous talking.
- Keep the reading rooms and their contents in good order by putting magazines, newspapers, and reference books back where they belong.
- Do not eat or drink at any time.
- Proper dress code must be observed during the academic day.
Further rules and information about the Library are posted at the entrance.
Library Copy Machine
The copy machine located in the Library is available for student use. It is the only copy machine students may use for normal copying needs. Since the machine is designed to do a small number of copies, it should not be used for high volume work. If you have a legitimate high-volume job, obtain the permission of a faculty member to use one of the copiers in the Faculty Mail Room. When making copies, please enter your name and the number of copies made on the sheet posted by the machine. Copies are charged on your SAS card at five cents per copy.
