Howard W. Hunter Law Library
J. Reuben Clark Law School
I, _____________________________________, agree and understand that my occupancy of a carrel is conditioned upon compliance with the terms stated below and may be terminated at any time, with or without cause. I also agree that I will be financially liable for any damages to the carrel resulting from my occupancy of it and acknowledge that failure to pay for damages may affect the receipt of my law school diploma and/or certification to take the bar exam.
- The primary purposes of the Law Library are to provide resources for legal research and a location for scholarship and study. These purposes are best accomplished in a clean, orderly, and quiet environment.
- As a courtesy, the Law Library has made study carrels available to assist students in their academic endeavors.
- Occupancy of a study carrel is a privilege, not a right. Inherent in this privilege are important obligations:
As a condition of carrel occupancy, I promise to conduct myself in a manner that is in harmony with the primary purposes of a library and bolsters an environment conducive to learning and study. By signing this agreement, I acknowledge that I must abide by the following rules:
|§1.||______||I understand that I am responsible for maintaining the carrel in a clean and orderly condition, suitable for a professional work environment. I agree to thoroughly clean the carrel before checking out at the end of occupancy. I recognize that a $25 fine will be assessed for the cleaning and removal of items left in my carrel at the end of occupancy.|
|§2.||______||I agree to immediately report any existing damage to the carrel and its surrounding area by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I also agree to report any damage or deterioration due to normal wear and tear as soon as it becomes apparent. I understand all carrels are inspected following check-out, and that I will be liable for any damage outside of normal use.|
|§3.||______||I understand that an approved Law Library chair is provided for each carrel, and that no other furnishings are permitted (see “furnishings” in the policies on the back of the form). If I require special accommodations for ADA or medical reasons, I will seek prior approval (in writing) from the Law School’s Dean of Students and the Student Services Librarian.|
|§4.||______||I agree to keep all books, decorations, personal belongings, and food consumption within the confines of the carrel assigned to me. I understand that any objects placed on top of the cabinets, or around or underneath the carrel assigned to me may be removed and taken to Circulation’s Lost & Found.|
|§5.||______||I agree that the library staff has the right to inspect all carrels (including locked portions) at any time without notice. I acknowledge that I need not be present for an inspection to occur.|
|§6.||______||I will treat my fellow students, library and law school employees, faculty, and others with respect; and I will cooperate in whatever manner requested to maintain a professional working environment.|
|§7.||______||I understand that penalties may be imposed for violations of this Agreement, which includes the Carrel Use Policy on the next page of the form. I understand that ongoing disregard of these policies may result in the loss of carrel privileges for the duration of the current academic year, or denial of privileges for future years.|
|§8.||______||I understand that I am responsible for the cleaning out and returning of the carrel key on time. I understand that these fines may not be waived and if not paid may affect the receipt of my law school diploma and/or certification to take the bar exam.|
By signing this form, I accept all the terms of this Agreement, including the Carrel Use Policy printed on the back of the form.
