Use of the Library for special events

Contact the Executive Director, Library Services with all inquiries to use the Harris Learning Library for an event. Inquiries made well in advance of the proposed event will be appreciated.

The primary purpose of the Harris Learning Library is to serve, support and advance the teaching, learning and research needs of the students, faculty and staff of Nipissing University and Canadore College. All individuals are asked to respect:

  • the privacy, study, work, research, teaching of library users and library staff
  • library policies, procedures, and operational needs/requirements
  • safety of library users/staff and security/safety protocols.

These guidelines reflect the Library’s operational needs and supplement the institutional policies, procedures, and requirements (Health, Safety, Security, Risk Management, Facilities, and Conference Services of Canadore College and Nipissing University).  If a smudging ceremony will be part of your event, special arrangements will be necessary.

Institutional/internal requests: please consult with the Executive Director, Library Services in advance. As much as possible we will accommodate requests, especially those that support the educational purposes of Canadore College and Nipissing University, and showcase, market and promote both institutions.

Requests external to the institutions must receive prior written approval from the Executive Director, Library Services; fees may be charged. Events or displays with the intent to sell products or services are typically not approved. Displays of non-profit services may be considered.

Depending on the nature of the event, time of year, library priorities, competing expectations, and operational requirements, it may not be possible to accommodate requests. Requests to hold events outside of library operating hours will require special permission and staffing/security arrangements; fees will be applied.

 

The Executive Director reserves the right to:

  • determine which areas of the library may or may not be used for an event
  • deny use during the academic year
  • terminate any event that is disruptive, compromises library policies and/or institutional policies, health and safety of library users, staff, and event participants.
