Procedures for Non-Emergency Safety or Security Situations

 

Security and safety concerns should be reported immediately to the Circulation Supervisor or Circulation staff.  Depending on the circumstances, Circulation staff may call the Circulation Supervisor or the Senior Director of Libraries. If the situation warrants it, University Police should be called at 911 or 210-567-2800. If UT Police are called, the Senior Director of Libraries should be notified.

If a problem occurs on weekends or after 5 p.m., contact the Library Administration Chain of Command.  Staff Emergency Contact Information is on the Staff Intranet (not publicly available).

 

Unattended children

Children under the age of 15 must be accompanied by a supervising adult at all times. Unattended children under the age of 15 should be reported to the Access Services Supervisor on duty.  The child should be asked to contact his/her parent or guardian.  If the supervising adult is not in the Library, University Police should be contacted.  This policy protects the child from possible harm.
