Policy for Advertising on Library Public Computer Screens

To be eligible for this library service, your organization needs to be:

  • a student organization that is sanctioned by MCSG and recognized by the Office of Student Leadership & Engagement,
  • an official academic or administrative department on campus, or
  • an established standing or special committee recognized by the campus administration.

Your event or promotion needs to be:

  • open and of interest to the campus community (not just a small group), and
  • easily accessible to the campus community (preferably held on campus).

Scheduled library-sponsored events will take precedence over other campus events.
