Rhinehart Room Policies and Procedures

The Rhinehart room is available Monday through Friday 8 am - 5 pm.

  • The room will be opened by Library Administrative Services personnel. Before class, the professor should come to the Administrative Services office to have the room opened and let them know when the class has ended so they can lock the room.
  • No food or drink is allowed in the Rhinehart Room.
  • Do not change the thermostat in the Rhinehart Room.  The room is temperature-controlled for the preservation of the collection.
  • No students are to be left in the room unattended, i.e., before, after, or between classes.  If students are members of a subsequent class meeting in the room, please ask them to leave and wait until their next professor arrives.
  • When you are finished using the room each day, please do the following:
    • Turn off the lights (switches located under light sconces next to bookcases). Note that recessed lighting above the table remains lit even after all light switches have been turned off.
    • Return chairs to their original locations (10-11 chairs at the table)
    • Close curtains
    • Clean up any paper or other debris left on the table
    • Close the door
    • Alert Administrative Services that the class is finished.
