Food and Drink

Drinks in spill-proof containers, or with lids are permitted in the FIMS Graduate Library. We request that no food be eaten in the FIMS Graduate Library in order to protect library material from insects and pests. Food may be eaten in the Graduate Student Lounge around the corner, or any of the public seating areas located throughout the building. Please be considerate of other library users and staff by putting your trash into the appropriate receptacles and cleaning up after yourself. A garbage receptacle is in the third-floor hallway outside the labs, and other recycling is beside the water fountain on the third floor.

Non-Service Dogs in Libraries

Western University established a Pets and Therapy Animals policy in May 2020 that limits the presence of pets in campus buildings. Service and therapy animals are permitted inside all Western Libraries locations, in accordance with accessibility policies, however animals for companionship are not allowed.

For more information, please review FIMS Grad Library’s Etiquette Policy.
