hi.

lately, we have been noticing that grad. students and staff
have been setting their kids up in the media dept. armed with
enough videos (ours and theirs) to last through a 3 hour class,
or sadly, an 8 hour workday.

do any of you ACADEMIC libraries have written policies about
unattended children in the library? my boss is mostly concerned
about the liability and risk involved and i am of course concerned
with the kids working the equipment.

any information will be appreciated - either on the list or to
me directly. THANKS,
