Public Address System

Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to define when the Upjohn Library Commons public address system should be used. This policy regulates acceptable use and ensures that disruptive noise and arbitrary use of the public address system does not occur.

Policy

Only Information Services staff or Security staff may use the public address system.

The Upjohn Library Commons public address system is used only to announce building closing times or for service announcements that affect everyone in the building, such as weather related warnings or emergency announcements.

There will be absolutely no paging of patrons, announcement of programs, or other incidental uses of this system.

When a person asks an Information Services staff member to use the public address system for emergency paging, the individual should be referred to Security (extension 7321).

If Security staff requests an Information Services staff member to make an emergency page, the Information Services staff member should comply.
