4. In all instances the Library reserves the right to refuse any item for display it considers in bad taste or of doubtful value.

5. Book displays should always reflect the Library's collections and/or the University's curriculum.

6. Displays must have educational value.

7. No religious or party political interests may be advertised or promoted.

8. Posting of notices and distribution of material does not imply endorsement by the Library.

9. The Library cannot be held responsible for the loss or damage of non-library material displayed.
