Library Visitors

Policy No: AA001

Policy Statement

The primary purpose of the FIT Library is to support the teaching, learning, research, and study needs of members of the college community, known as Patrons. In addition to the FIT community, Patrons include all SUNY faculty, staff, and students with valid school IDs. Persons not currently members of the college community (former FIT students and alumni; students, faculty, and staff from other colleges and universities; and members of industry) are Visitors. They may use some Library collections, databases and facilities as Visitors and by making appointments in advance. Visitors must voluntarily yield to the needs of library Patrons whenever necessary, particularly when the Library is very busy.

The college reserves the right to restrict any individual from entering the Library or from using any of its materials, equipment, facilities, or services. Patrons or Visitors who engage in disruptive behavior, or who are using Library facilities for purely recreational purposes, may be asked to leave.
