Personal Property and Safety

Please help deter theft by not leaving personal property unattended. When you leave your study area, take your property with you or ask someone you know to diligently watch your belongings while you’re away.

If you see anyone acting suspiciously or inappropriately, or if you are the victim of a theft, please contact the Security staff immediately. Be prepared to provide a report of the incident and a description of the suspect(s) involved.

Lost and Found

Lost and Found for the Mugar Memorial Library is located at the Circulation Desk. Items recovered by patrons and staff should be turned in to Lost and Found, where owners of the lost/misplaced items can claim them. Items such as books, clothing, glasses, identifications, keys, etc., can be claimed at the Circulation Desk. Items of greater value, e.g., laptops, tabets, jewelry, wallets, etc., can be claimed at the Security Office.

Library Property

Bags are not routinely checked but are subject to inspection whenever the security alarm sounds. Bag checks are intended to assure that all library material leaving the building is properly checked out.
