To help provide high-quality and equitable library services, the staff
of the Drake Law Library has established a number of policies, listed below, which are reviewed and adjusted on an as-needed basis. If you have any questions about these policies, please do not hesitate to contact the director of the library, John Edwards
Please help us maintain a pleasant environment for working and learning by following these basic rules:

- Standards of Conduct
All library patrons are expected to show consideration of others and cooperate with other library users and staff.
- Food and Drink
Drinks in covered containers or cans and pre-packaged snacks may be consumed away from library computers. No other food is allowed. Avoid products whose unwrapping, smell, or consumption may be disruptive. Lounges outside the library are available for other food consumption. This policy does not apply to library offices of faculty, staff, Moot Court Board, or Journal of Agricultural Law.
The library is primarily a place for quiet study and research. Users are expected to be mindful of those around them and help maintain a quiet atmosphere. Users should turn off cell phone ringers upon entering the library and hold conversations quietly and away from people who are working.
- Re-shelving Books
Users are asked to re-shelve books after using them.
- No Smoking
Smoking or other tobacco use is not permitted anywhere in the library.
