Library Policies

A resource to library policies about materials and computer use.

Purpose

The purpose of library events is to contribute to the intellectual and cultural environment of the University Library and the greater university community.

Scope and Nature of Events

Library events are intended to reflect and highlight research, programs, curricula, or the campus life of the University of the South. Although beliefs and viewpoints expressed in the events belong to the event coordinators and do not necessarily represent the opinions of the Library Administration or the University of the South Library, events will be consistent with the University’s educational philosophy and ideals and be fair and equitable concerning issues of potential controversy. Fund raising events involving food are not permitted inside the library or on the front porch.

Event Space

Events can be held in the lobby of the duPont Library or on the front porch. The open tables are available to use in the lobby. Student organizations can also bring their own table to set up on the front porch.

Application Process

Submit an online application describing the purpose of the event, preferred dates for the event and applicant’s contact information. The event proposal should be submitted at least 1 week prior to the proposed beginning date of the event. Applications will be evaluated by the Library Administration. Applicants will be informed by email within 3 days of submitting their request in regard to the acceptance and scheduling of their proposed event. The Library reserves the right to refuse any event request.
