Georgia Southern University is a state institution (approximately 50% of the university's budget comes from state appropriations and approximately 33% comes from tuition and fees) that seeks to advance the quality of life in Georgia through education, research and service. Zach S. Henderson Library supports the University's mission by providing access to resources designed to meet the scholarly needs of the University and the general public and by promoting independent lifelong learning. Library users are expected to contribute to maintaining an appropriate study atmosphere and to observe library rules and regulations.
Children in the Library
Children visiting Henderson Library should be accompanied at all times by a parent or supervising adult (over age 21) for their own safety and well being. Parents or a supervising adult, not the Library, are responsible for children’s use of the Library including access to electronic resources. The Library provides electronic access to the complete, unfiltered World Wide Web, the online catalog, and more than 400 databases. The Library building and its information resources are intended for University faculty, staff, and students and are not necessarily appropriate for younger children. Children visiting the library without their parents or a supervising adult will not be allowed to remain if their behavior is disruptive.
