Law Library Food and Drink Policy

Food and Drink Policy
 University of British Columbia Library
For pdf version: Food & Drink Policy.

Please help us to preserve the Law Library and its collections for future generations of students and scholars.

• You may not eat in any public space in the Law Library.
• You may drink from closed, spill-proof containers.  You may drink water from any container that is closed when not in use. No other drink containers are allowed.

The Law Library is committed to providing a learning and information environment that meets the intellectual and physical needs of users who are frequently in the library for extended periods of time.

This commitment requires that a balance be struck between the need to preserve the collection and the need to provide for the comfort of our users.

The Law Library developed its Food and Drink policy to help to preserve library materials and equipment, to maintain pest-free buildings and damage-free furnishings, to reduce litter, and to ensure a clean environment for studying and working.

Library staff will ask those who do not respect this policy to dispose of food and beverages (in unapproved containers), or to leave the Library. Please store, out of sight, any food and drinks intended for later consumption elsewhere. The Law Library appreciates your cooperation.
