Purpose of libraries' existence.

The libraries constitute a vital instructional arm of the University of Washington and exist primarily to contribute to the university's teaching and research functions.

Service schedule.

(1) Business hours are based on the identifiable needs of the university community as a whole and in consideration of the staff made available to support public service activities of the libraries.

(2) All libraries may close on legal and university holidays. Such closures are posted at the respective library locations seven days in advance.

(3) Unscheduled closures may be declared by the director of libraries or his/her designee, for the University of Washington libraries. The director of the Marian Gould Gallagher Law Library or his/her designee will have responsibilities for determining unscheduled closures for the Marian Gould Gallagher Law Library. Unscheduled closures will be due to staffing or physical plant problems beyond the libraries' control which constitute a threat to life, limb, essential creature comforts or utility of the facilities by users and staff.

In general, the reading room is open for use by any person having need of the library's legal materials. However, when necessary to serve University of Washington faculty and University of Washington law school students effectively, the law librarian may restrict access to the library or any part of the library.

Use of materials.

(1) In the use of library materials the Marian Gould Gallagher Law Library serves the students, faculty and staff of the law school, the students, faculty and staff of other university departments, faculty of other colleges and universities, librarians of other libraries, judges, members of the Washington bar and persons who have a degree from the law school. The law librarian has discretion to specify other groups of patrons and to set priorities of use among all groups of patrons. However, University of Washington law school faculty and law school students have priority when other patrons need the same materials.

(2) Circulation regulations may differ according to type of material and usage.

(3) Because of the reference nature of much of the collection, many of the books do not circulate and must be used in the library. The law librarian shall define the phrase "in the library."

(4) Each borrower is responsible for materials which he or she checks out at the circulation desks.
