Enforcement

Authorized library staff may intervene to stop prohibited activities and behaviors.

Failure to comply with these rules may result in:

1) withdrawal of a person’s permission to remain on Library property; and/or

2) issuance of a Notice of Exclusion from Library property for a period of one day to two years. A violation of law may also result in arrest and prosecution. Violations of law and/or these rules may also result in the restriction and/or termination of Library privileges, including the use of Library computers and other equipment. Authorized personnel may base a Notice of Exclusion on personal observation or upon the sort of civilian reports that would ordinarily be relied upon by police officers in the determination of probable cause.

External Users who wish to become members of the library of European University Cyprus and obtain a library card must apply to the circulation desk.
