Setting Off the Security Gates

2700870769_c6ac8783c2Books purchased at the university bookstore contain magnetic strips that may activate the security gates in the library.  If the alarm sounds each time you enter the library, chances are you have textbooks that need “de-magnetizing”.  Stop at the circulation desk and ask a staff member to assist you.  Also, please make sure that all your library books have been checked out.

Security Precautions

Theft can be a problem in any building on campus so we remind you to never leave personal belongings unattended in the library.  Remember to take valuable items with you when you leave or ask a colleague to watch books/backpacks if you will be gone for a very short period of time. Study rooms are no exception. Always use the laptop security devices installed on carrels and tables throughout the library to secure your computer. Security cables can be purchased in the bookstore.

Library Traffic and Security Gates

Here are a few tips to minimize setting off the security gates’ alarm. Material removed from reserve must always be checked out and desensitized even if you are just taking the material to another area within the library. Use the self-check machine or take materials to the circulation desk. To avoid activating the alarm as you leave the library, make sure that your books are properly checked out and desensitized. If the alarm sounds, please return to the circulation desk. Various items may set off the alarm, including textbooks purchased at the bookstore, inventory tags, and other electronic sensing devices; circulation staff may be able to help you identify the source.

Library Seating and Security

As the semester winds down and you begin gearing up for finals, seating in the library will fill up quickly. Please be considerate of your peers and do not homestead study carrels. When you leave the library for class, work, or an extended meeting, take your personal belongings with you. Personal items left in study carrels overnight will be collected by the library staff. Remember that theft can be a problem in any building on campus so never leave your property unattended.  Don’t forget that we have laptop security devices installed on the carrels and computer tables for your use.
