General Noise Guidelines; Be considerate of others. Areas near the service desk generally will be noisier than elsewhere. Headphones may be used, but volume must be set low so noise is not audible to others. Laptops and library computers may be operated, but sound and audio features must be turned off. Cell phones and pagers should be turned to silent or vibrate. Talking should be kept to a normal level. Created 11/8/10
