The mission of the University of Portland's Wilson W. Clark Memorial Library is to serve the students, faculty, and staff of the University by providing library resources and services necessary for teaching, learning, and scholarly achievement. The library does this by acquiring and organizing collections and resources and by facilitating research through its access and educational services. In order to maintain a library environment that supports the library’s mission, the following guidelines have been established:
Drinks must be in spill-proof containers in all areas of the Library.
Food is limited to snack or wrapped items that are consumed individually. Group meals or open plates of food (such as pizza, and other take-out meals) should be consumed outside the library.
Food and drink pose a potential risk to library collections, equipment, and furnishings. We therefore ask that you act responsibly when consuming food and drink in the library. Please report spills immediately to service desk personnel so that they can be cleaned up quickly.
