Special Collections Room Policies

  • Accessby appointment.
  • Occupancy: limit of three persons, with rare exception.
  • Food, drink, tobacco, and chewing gum are never permitted.
  • The extent of the use permitted is limited by the guidelines associated with the particular collection, and the physical condition of the item requested.
  • Only the attending librarian may retrieve and reshelve materials requested by a user.
  • Materials so retrieved may not at any time leave the Special Collections Room without the express permission of the attending librarian.
  • So that we can best protect our fragile materials, guests are asked to use the desk lamp instead of the overhead lighting, and refrain from adjusting any equipment within the room.
  • The Law Library reserves at all times the right to restrict the use of a particular collection.


This policy is particular to the Law Library Special Collections Room. Please visit the University Library for information regarding other Regent University special collections.
