Cell Phone Use Policy

Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
Effective Spring Semester 2005

This electronic communications device policy is an effort by the Library and Information Services to maintain an environment that is comfortable and conducive to study for all users. By promoting responsible behavior, the policy attempts to achieve a balance between our users' social needs and our responsibility to those who find the use of these devices to be disruptive.


Electronic communications devices, such as cell phones and pagers, are permitted in Lovejoy Library. However, they must be used in a way that avoids disturbing other library users.

Electronic devices should be turned to silent or vibrate mode. Any conversation on a cell phone should be held in an area where conversation will not disturb or distract others.

THANKS for helping make our facilities more inviting by:

  • Using electronic communication devices responsibly.
  • Honoring requests for quiet and moving to another location if an unintended disturbance occurs.
  • Reporting any problems that may occur to LIS staff so they can be addressed immediately.
