May I use my cell phone in the library?
We ask that you be considerate of your fellow library users and set your phone to vibrate, or turn down the ringer when you enter the library.
We also ask that you please hold your cell phone conversations outside the library.
May I bring food in to the library?
Given that the Dana Medical Library wishes to create a welcoming atmosphere, and in recognition of the fact that there are limited alternative dining areas nearby, and acknowledging our responsibility to protect library materials and equipment and to ensure the rights of all users to undisturbed study, the following food and drink policy is effective immediately. All drinks must be in covered containers. All trash must be disposed of properly. Should a spill occur, please ask at the Circulation desk for a cleanup kit.
How do I get in to the library in the evenings and on the weekends?
The door to enter Dana is behind Converse Hall. These vestibule doors are open for all the hours the Dana Library is open. All entrances to the Rowell, Given, Research buildings and the Medical Education Building are locked at 7 pm nightly and on weekends.
NOTE: For people who have Cat Card access to Given or HRSF: there are doors that will lock at 7 pm on weekdays and for the weekends at the ends of the corridor in front of the Library. If you visit the Library after 7 pm, you will need your Cat Card or FAHC ID to reenter Given or the hospital!
May I borrow materials from the Dana Medical Library?
The general public is welcome to use the library materials within the library. Online materials are available, but many require that you be in one of the libraries to use them. Please Note: Some materials, such as course reserves and some online databases, are restricted to use by UVM faculty, students and staff. Please see the Dana Library Borrowing Policies for more information.
