Information Literacy & Instructional Services
Professors, teachers and media specialists are encouraged to schedule library orientations with Instructional Services. FAU librarians will plan an orientation based on each group's specific needs. The following rules apply to non-affiliated group orientations:
- All orientations should be arranged at least two weeks in advance of the scheduled library visit.
Teachers should provide copies of any class assignments at least one week prior to the scheduled orientation. The maximum size for a group tour is 30. For a group of minors at least one chaperone is required for every ten students. Priority will be given to FAU students, faculty and staff in the use of all library resources and services. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated; consequently, individuals may be asked to leave.
Priority will be given to FAU students, faculty and staff, but non-affiliated users are welcome to attend when space is available.
Reference consultations for non-affiliated users are offered at the Reference Desk. Consultations for non-affiliated users may be discontinued if they interfere with the librarian's regular library duties or disrupt the library's flow of operations.
Questions regarding public service policies should be directed to Dawn Smith, Assistant Dean, Public Services.
