Library Community Standards
The UNH Manchester Library provides shared spaces designed to support the academic mission of the University of New Hampshire by providing expertise and resources in a safe, welcoming, and respectful environment that is conducive to research and study. While the UNH Library is open to members of the public, library spaces are primarily designed to support the research, scholarship, and study needs of UNH students and employees. To achieve this purpose, certain standards of behavior are expected of all library patrons in order to foster an environment of civility and respect.
The UNH Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) provides guidelines for the acceptable use of the University's IT resources. The purpose of the AUP is to ensure that the information technology infrastructure promotes the basic missions of the University in teaching, research, administration, and service. Patrons may be asked to review and confirm an understanding of the AUP before accessing UNH IT resources.
The UNH Library Copyright Policy provides guidelines for the acceptable use of University resources in accordance with the Copyright Law of the U.S. (Title 17 of the U.S. Code).
Thank you for your efforts to maintain a shared safe and welcoming environment in the Library. UNH library personnel established this statement of community standards to ensure the safety, security, and comfort of everyone using library space and resources.
