  • What are Spangler Learning Center's building hours?
    You can view our monthly calendar for the building hours. The Library is open when the building is open.
  • What are the building's general policies?

    The following are official ODU Library building policies. If you have questions or comments, feel free to contact Circulation Services

    To foster a welcoming environment conducive to study and research, the following guidelines have been established concerning appropriate noise levels. Continued excessive noise will be cause for a patron being asked to leave the building.

    • General Noise
      Quiet conversation among patrons, and group study, is acceptable in all areas of the building,
    • Cell Phone Use
      Prior to entering the building, cell phones should be turned off or set to a non-audible ring. Cell phone conversations are only acceptable if they are quiet and non-disruptive to other patrons.

    Unsupervised Children
    Because Spangler Learning Center staff cannot guarantee the safety of children who are left unattended while parents attend class, and also to ensure an atmosphere conducive to study and research, patrons are discouraged from bringing minors (children under the age of 18) to the Spangler Learning Center.

    All publicity to be displayed in Spangler Learning Center should be approved at the Student Activities Office or by the Director, Library Services. Publicity may only be posted on designated bulletin boards. Publicity may NOT be posted on glass, walls or doors.

    Publicity found in undesignated areas, or any publicity without approval, will be removed. Individuals or organizations are responsible for removing all publicity within 24 hours after the event.
