Patron Code of Conduct

The primary mission of the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Library is to serve the students, faculty, and staff of the Law School and the Cleveland State University community.  We also welcome members of the Bar and public who wish to use our collection for conducting legal research.  It is our desire to provide an environment conducive to research, reading, and the legitimate use of library materials and services.  To foster this environment, it is necessary that all users of our facilities act in a manner which follows our rules and is considerate of the rights of other patrons.    Read more.
