Public Service Policy

Cartographic Information Center
Public Service Policy
Effective February 1, 2004

Policy
The Cartographic Information Centerís (CIC) mission is to support the teaching and research activities of the Louisiana State University Department of Geography & Anthropology and the entire Louisiana State University community.   The Cartographic Information enter is open to the general public, but due to reduced student staff hours patrons not affiliated with LSU are required to make an appointment to view aerial photographs.  All persons using the CICís collections are expected to follow the Use and Security Procedures.

Appointment Procedure
All patrons who are not affiliated with Louisiana State University as current students, faculty, or staff  working on class assignments or research projects must make an appointment to view aerial photographs.  Appointment requests must be made not less than 48 hours in advance.  All requests will be for a specific date, starting time, and will not exceed one hour.  Appointments can be made by e-mail  to John Anderson at janders@lsu.edu
 

Use and Security Procedures
The Cartographic Information Center is a closed stack facility that does not allow browsing.   The CIC staff is available to assist patrons to identify the appropriate materials using indexes and electronic finding aids and will pull the materials for the patron.  While viewing materials in the Reading Room the following rules apply:

Only pencils will be allowed near the materials.
No food or beverages will be allowed whether open or covered.
Patrons may have no more than ten aerial photographs at a time.
All notebooks, scanners, books, and bags will be subject to inspection upon request.
 

Reproductions
Current LSU students may use a scanner provided by the Student Technology Fee to scan non-copyrighted materials that are not fragile. Images can be saved on portable memory sticks or to LSU accounts..

Public patrons may bring their own laptop and flatbed scanner or camera to make images of non-copyrighted materials.

Folding or taping of materials for scanning is forbidden and patrons will not be allowed to scan fragile materials.  Arrangements can be made for professional imaging of aerial photographs as well as fragile and oversized materials.

The CIC staff will not certify copies.
