Library's food and drink policy

Published by Dipa Barua

Q. I'm a frequent user of the Bennett Library, and I appreciate the resources available here for research and study.  I know that the library has a policy on allowing food in certain areas, as long as it does not disturb others. I frequently use the Research Commons, and it's not uncommon for people here to eat strong-smelling or crunchy foods at their computers. Sometimes, I find crumbs or food stains on the desks left by previous users, making it impossible to use the desks for work or study.  I do not feel that this behavior is consistent with the library policy.
