Rules for Use of the Library

  • All borrowed publications must be signed out.

  • Only persons with formal Carnegie affiliation (post-docs, pre-docs, summer interns, visiting investigators, etc.) are entitled to sign out material. Borrowing privileges for newcomers will be approved only after notification of CIW appointment is received from the DTM or Geophysical Laboratory office.

  • Current issues of journals on display in the Reading Room (generally the issues for the past year) are not to be signed out or removed from the Main Building under any circumstances. They may be removed briefly for photocopying, but then must be returned immediately.

  • Borrowing of back volumes (bound or unbound) of journals from the periodicals stacks is strongly discouraged--desired articles should be photocopied and the volumes then be returned to their places. If necessary, however, these journals may be signed out for a period of one week.

  • Books and maps may be signed out for extended periods, but when their use is completed please return them.

  • Removal of library books and maps from the campus (e.g., to home offices) is discouraged, especially during those times when the borrower is away for extended periods. Journals may not be taken off-site. To maintain the accessibility of our collection, users are asked to keep borrowed items in some prominent spot on their campus book shelves, where they may be readily spotted if someone else requires the material.

  • Staff members hosting non-permanent personnel should bring these people to the library at the start of their tenure and introduce them to Shaun Hardy and/or Merri Wolf, so that their identities are known and they can be instructed on the operation and rules of the library.

  • Staff members are expected to assist library staff by ensuring that their postdocs and visitors return everything they borrowed.

  • Recommendations for new book purchases are welcome and should be directed to Shaun Hardy, with an indication of relevance to current research interests.
