The Adelphi University Libraries support the educational goals of Adelphi University by providing access to all forms of information to support research, study, teaching, and the general pursuit of knowledge. In order to be successful in this mission, the Libraries and its community of users observe a relationship of reciprocal rights and responsibilities. While most users conduct themselves in a responsible manner, in the interest of protecting the rights of all Library users, it is necessary to define what constitutes infringements on the rights of others.
Users will refrain from engaging in behavior that leads to the denial of, or unreasonable interference with, the rights of others; or which disrupts the regular operations and activities of the Library. Behavior which is considered to be in violation of the AU Libraries Conduct Policy includes, but is not limited to:
Violations of the AU Libraries Conduct Policy may be referred for disciplinary action under applicable Library and/or University disciplinary processes. Where appropriate, instances of misconduct may be referred to local,state, or federal law enforcement officials.

Such an environment is characterized by respect for the rights of others, respect for the Library's resources, and respect for appropriate conduct in a public forum. The Conduct Policy ensures that users of the Adelphi University Libraries find themselves in an environment that will enable them to achieve their educational objectives.
