The University Library is committed to the safety and well-being of its staff, students and guests. The purpose of this manual is to outline possible Library emergency situations and to supply information necessary for a rational course of action should an emergency arise. All UTEP staff who work in the Library should understand the contents of this guide.
Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the contents and organization of this guide and/or the printed manual. Emergency telephone numbers and a clear plan of action have been listed. The information in this guide/manual is updated on a regular basis.
The Library Emergency Procedure committee and the University Police contributed to the original document written in 1996 along with ideas shared from the University of Oklahoma Library Emergency Manual. Throughout the years, these procedures and protocols have been continually reviewed and updated.
