Reg Erhardt Library Policies
The Reg Erhardt Library's policies support safe, equitable and accessible services for the SAIT community.
Library patrons are expected to observe all SAIT rules and guidelines, as well as follow instructions from library staff or SAIT security. The Library Code of Conduct supplements, but does not replace, SAIT's Code of Conduct. Failure to comply with these Codes or library policies may result in loss of library privileges and/or expulsion from the library.
