The Windward Community College Library Use and Conduct Policy is established for the benefit of all users of the Library and is applicable to all. Violations should be reported to Library staff, who will take appropriate action. This policy is enforceable by all members of the Library staff. Violators will be reported and pursued to the full extent of federal and state laws. Disruptive behavior may result in expulsion from the Library.
To ensure that the environment is conducive to study and research, all users are asked to abide by this Library Use and Conduct Policy.
