No one may enter the Law School Building, Lawrence W. Inlow Hall, without a JagTag after 9:00pm. Those entering before 9:00pm may use the library until closing. Persons entering the Law School building during evening hours (beginning at 6:30 p.m.) or on weekends (Friday evening after 5pm through Sunday Midnight) must use the New York St. entrance and either display their JagTag or sign in and display photo identification at the reception desk. All persons entering Inlow Hall are subject to the Inlow Hall Code of Conduct.
The library uses a security system which will sound if library materials are removed without being checked out. If the alarm sounds the user is requested to return to the circulation desk. In order to protect the library collection, as well as patrons' rights to use library materials, briefcases and containers may be checked as each person leaves the library.
The willful or reckless destruction, damage or mutilation of any library materials or other library property is strictly forbidden and may be punished by suspension or expulsion.
The Ruth Lilly Law Library is aware that, from time-to-time, photographers and videographers are present on the library premises for the purpose of engaging in photography and videography. Under certain circumstances, individuals taking pictures may need prior permission. For example, commercial-related activities and ventures must contact the IUPUI Office of Communications & Marketing, 317-274-7711, to obtain approval before commencing work, which will be granted on a limited basis solely at the University’s discretion.
Beverages are permitted in all areas of the Library if they are in travel-type cups with secure, sealed lids, pop-top or pull-top sports bottles. Some food in appropriate containers is permitted in all areas of the Library except for the Reading Room and the Rare Book Room. Meals, hot foods, and any messy or aromatic foods are not allowed. Outside delivery of food to the Library is not permitted. Food and drink should not be left unattended or uncovered; any food left unattended will be removed and discarded. Library personnel retain the right to decide if a food item falls within the permitted food items or not. Please note that users who bring in food that disrupts their fellow users’ study will be asked to remove such food from the Library. Patrons are expected to clean up after themselves by placing recyclable material, trash and food refuse in the appropriate receptacles. Containers for recyclable bottles and cans are located on each floor of the Library. In the event of spills, clean-up supplies are available at the Circulation Desk. This food and drink policy does not extend to the computer labs.
Please reshelve books after you use them. Materials should go spine upward on the shelves.
Please do not refile microforms after you use them. Place in containers on top of microform cabinets, and library staff will refile them.
Library books are reshelved throughout the day. Our reshelving policy applies to all types of material left in carrels or on tables. Due to the need to make materials available for as many users as possible, "save" signs or "do not reshelve" signs cannot be honored. If you must leave the library for a short period of time (two hours or less) and will be using the books immediately upon your return, you may leave a note on the books stating the present time and the notation "Back in less than 2 hours."
Public telephones are available outside the front doors of the library. Patrons may not use library telephones.
