Cell Phone Use
Erickson Library is a quiet place for study, research, and reading. The use of cell phones can be disruptive to those who are using the library and its resources. But, there may be times when patrons need to use their phone. Therefore, staff have set up a room for patrons to use a cell phone to conduct his/her calls. Patrons using cell phones may do so in Library Room E1042 which is located behind the Reference Desk. View LSC Policies.
Food and Beverages
Food and snacks can be problematic due to clean-up and potential infestations resulting from having food in the library, so food is prohibited in the library. However, covered beverages (i.e. any container with a lid such as water bottles, thermos, beverages with a twist cap, etc.) are allowed.
There are 9 study rooms available for groups to meet and collaborate in an environment conducive for group work. There are 4 technology-enhanced group study rooms with large screen monitors that allow students to work collaboratively on projects and papers. The rooms are checked out at the Circulation Desk or by reserving ahead via the online Group Reservation link on the library’s homepage using your StarID for a 2-hour loan period and may be renewed if no one else is waiting to use a room.
