College Policies & Library Guidelines

The Library Use Guidelines stand as directions for governing the behavior of library clientele at Rochester Community and Technical College, Goddard Library. The Library Use Guidelines also support and align with existing MnSCU policies and the college campus Student Conduct Policy.

Goddard Library is open to the public. However, as an academic college library, students, faculty and staff of RCTC and WSUR are the library’s primary clientele. Children and young adults 16 years old and younger must be supervised by an adult at all times while in the library. This aligns with the RCTC Children on Campus Policy.

Animals, with the exception of guide dogs for the visually and hearing impaired, are not permitted in Goddard Library. Any exceptions to this principle must be approved by the library staff and the campus Disability Coordinator.

As a general rule, no person should act in a manner which interferes, distracts or disturbs the academic learning environment of others. Inappropriate library behavior includes but is not limited to: excessive noise, running, cell phone disruptions, inappropriate language, or any action that may also violate the RCTC/Minnesota State policies. 

Computers located near the Reference Desk are for library research. Other uses such as e-mail, web registration, on-line financial aid application, word processing, etc. should be done on LTC or computer lab computers.

Library clientele are expected to assume responsibility for all materials checked out on their identification cards. Forgery, alteration or misuse of library documents, records or Identification cards will not be permitted.

Only beverages in covered containers are permitted in the library

Thank you for your cooperation.
