The purpose of this policy is to establish the terms and conditions under which Library space may be used for filming, still photography and/or video production. This policy is intended to help maintain an appropriate environment for study and research in the library. The privacy of individuals using the library is of paramount concern.
Before taking pictures or videos at Morris Library, individuals should check in with the Dean's Office.
- The Dean's office should be informed of the purpose/use of the photos and the primary areas in the Library where the pictures will be taken.
- The Dean's Office will notify the staff at public desks in those areas.
Library personnel or patrons should not be used in photographs or films without the expressed consent of the individual.
- If patrons request not to be included in any photo or video, we ask that their wishes be respected as a matter of courtesy.
- To maintain privacy, photographs or videos of patrons using the computer or reading should be done at a distance to ensure that the items being read or viewed are not disclosed.
