Howard W. Hunter Law Library
J. Reuben Clark Law School
I, _____________________________________, agree and understand that my occupancy of study 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 damage to the carrel resulting from my occupation 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 an entitlement. 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. (A vacuum and cleaning supplies are available at the Circulation Desk.) I agree to thoroughly clean the carrel before checking out at the end of my occupancy.|
|§2||I agree to immediately report any existing damage to the carrel and its surroundings by email to the email@example.com. I also agree to report any damage or deterioration due to normal wear and tear as soon as it becomes apparent. I understand that all carrels are inspected following check-out, and that I will be liable for any damage outside of normal use.|
|§3||I understand that all library materials held at a carrel must be properly checked out, whether they are kept within the locked cabinets or not. I understand that any unauthorized library materials will be returned to the shelves and a penalty will be assessed for each item. (See the Carrel Use Policy for details. This policy is on the back of the printed form.)|
|§4||I understand that an approved Library chair is provided for each carrel, and that no other furnishings are permitted. (See “Furnishings” in the Carrel Use Policy.) 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.|
|§5||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.|
|§6||I agree that the library staff has the right to inspect all carrels (including the locked portion) at any time and without notice. I acknowledge that I need not be present for an inspection to occur.|
|§ 7||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 in the carrel areas.|
|§ 8||I understand that penalties may be imposed for violations of this Agreement, which includes the Carrel Use Policy. 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.|
By signing this form, I accept all of the terms of this Agreement, including the Carrel Use Policy.
