Mission and Goals adopted by Library Staff May 21, 2018
The library is one floor with a lot of open space. Out of consideration for other patrons, the use of cell phones is not allowed in the library. Phones should be turned off or set to vibrate before entering.
The staff at Massasoit Community College understands that in some circumstances it may be necessary to bring children on campus. Thus, although not encouraged, children are not prohibited from being on the campus so long as they are under the direct supervision of a parent and/or a designated adult at all times. College staff and faculty members responsible for specific College areas reserve the right to exclude children from that area when, in their judgment, it is in the interest of health, safety, or the educational process. The College cannot be responsible for the care and supervision of unattended children. Campus police will be asked to locate and return to the custody of the parent any unattended children.
Internet access for research purposes is provided equally to all library users, regardless of age. Parents or guardians, not the library or its staff, are responsible for the Internet information accessed by their children.
Massasoit Community College Library is committed to providing a quiet, welcoming, respectful atmosphere conducive to study and research in an environment that is comfortable, clean, and safe for both library users and staff. Any behavior that interferes with the operation of the Library or its users may be considered disruptive.
Prohibited behaviors include, but are not limited to,
At the discretion of staff, disruptive users may be asked to move to another area or leave the Library entirely. If the user refuses to comply, Campus Police will be contacted for assistance.
