"In house use": sounds like anywhere in the library only. Might even have 
connotations that only librarians can touch it.
"on-site": sounds technical compared to "In house use", without the 
librarian use only connotation.
"reading room": sounds like it is only in a specific room, not anywhere in 
the library.

Perhaps a mix? "on-site use"? "reading use only" as compared to the typical 
understanding of can take home and read? Though, it is too subtle in the 
"you can't take it home" department. I'm merely a programmer, not a library 
geek, so weigh my feedback accordingly.
