Welcome to the Wayne G. Basler Library at Northeast State Community College
As an integral part of a dynamic educational institution, the Wayne G. Basler Library endeavors to maintain an atmosphere that is conducive to learning, research, and relaxation. For this reason, library users, at all campus locations, are expected to conform to certain standards of conduct to maintain the use and enjoyment of the Library by others.
The following conduct is not permitted within the Library or Learning Resource Centers (LRC):
In the event library users are disruptive to the learning environment and/or exhibits behaviors that are disrespectful, belligerent, rude or harassing to other students, faculty or staff, they will be asked to stop such behavior immediately. If the behavior does not stop or they have to be called on again for disruptive behaviors, they will be required to leave the Library or Learning Resource Centers (LRC) for the remainder of the day and the student conduct officer will be notified. In the event a library user has repeated and continued disruptions the student conduct officer and campus administration will be alerted and library privileges may be revoked.
If the library user refuses to leave and becomes belligerent and there is an immediate threat, notify the Campus Police immediately.
If the library user refuses to leave but there is no immediate threat, document the incident with the BIT form and email the Student Conduct officer (VP of Student Affairs).
Report the incident to the Dean of the Library.

For the purposes of this policy, minor children are defined as a person who has not completed the junior year in high school and under 18 years of age.
NeSCC maintains the following policy regarding children on campus, which would include the Library:
Northeast State Community College is an institution of higher education and as such must preserve conditions which will permit a proper learning and working environment at all times. Students, faculty, and staff are not approved to leave minor children unsupervised on campus. It is not the intent of this policy to prevent children in the accompaniment of an adult from visiting the campus. However, consideration for the learning environment of the students, the work routine of staff, and the safety of children requires that children may not accompany adults into classrooms, offices, or other work spaces as a childcare function nor be left unsupervised in the halls or grounds of the College.
In certain circumstances, children may be on campus for classes held for their benefit (field trips, etc.). At such times, it is expected that the instructor or responsible adult will supervise the activities of the children, and before and after the class an area will be designated for the children to await their parents' arrival. It is the responsibility of the supervisor/instructor of these activities to explain these restrictions to the children and to monitor the enforcement where feasible.
In all circumstances related to children on campus, it is the expectation of the institution that good judgment be exercised in preventing disruption of the office routine or learning environment while at the same time exhibiting concern over the safety of children who are visitors to our campus. Where conditions exist which do not appear to be covered by this policy, inquiry should be made to the appropriate officials of the College.
If a child is present and behaving inappropriately:
Northeast State has Learning Resource Centers (LRC’s) located at the following campuses: Elizabethton, Gray, Johnson City, and Kingsport.
The Learning Resource Centers (LRC’s) are for current students, faculty, and staff use only. Minors are not permitted in the Learning Resource Centers (LRC's) but they may use the main Library on the Blountville Campus with proper adult supervision.
The Learning Resource Centers (LRC’s) are for current students, faculty, and staff use only.
Members of the surrounding community may use the Library only on the Blountville campus and register as a community borrower.
