Guide for Visitors

Ikeda Library is open to the members of general public during the SUA business hours when classes are in session: Monday - Friday: 9AM to 5PM; Saturday & Sunday: Closed. 

Library Resources
Library books and periodicals are available for browsing only. None of the library materials are available for the general public to check out. However, we offer Interlibrary Loan services and lend books or send periodical articles to the participating libraries in the United States. Please contact your public or college library and ask them to borrow books from us.

Study Desks
The study desks on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floor are available for use by the general public.

Group Study Rooms
The group study room on the 1st floor may be used by the general public. It is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. The general public using the 1st floor study room will be asked to surrender the room after 1 hour from the time of occupancy if other patrons are waiting. A room left unoccupied for 30 minutes is considered abandoned. Any items left in the room will be turned over to campus security.

24-hour Study Room
The seats in 24-hour study room on the 2nd/main floor of the library are reserved for the current SUA students.

Noise Level 
The library is intended as a place of study. Library users are expected to show consideration for others using the library. Earphones must be worn to listen to audio output in all areas of the library. If audio output is audible by another user, it is considered too loud. Cell phone conversation is not allowed in the library.

No Food in the Library 
Food attracts bugs, mice and other pests into the building. Please enjoy your snacks outside the library. Beverages may be brought into the building in travel-type cups, with lids. These cups may be purchased in the bookstore. Coffee cups, with lids, may also be brought into the library. Soda cups with straws are not acceptable, as they spill easily if dropped or knocked over. Thank you for your cooperation.

Lost and Found
Ikeda Library is not responsible for any lost items. Lost and Found items are picked up by the campus security staff (Tel: 949-480-4100).
