New Entry Procedures at Regenstein Library

The Library has recently installed new software and a locking turnstile at the entry to the Regenstein Library in order to better regulate access to authorized individuals. Regulating access allows the Library to focus its finite resources on faculty and students at the University of Chicago, and to protect the collection and its users.

Access to the Regenstein can be gained by scanning a Chicago Card at the east turnstile. The scanner itself is on top of the turnstile. When the card has been read, the turnstile mechanism will make an audible click, unlock and allow entry.

Faculty without a Chicago card may currently show white or blue academic identification cards to gain entry at the west (left) turnstile. At the end of Spring Quarter, however, the west turnstile will be locked, and entry will be facilitated for those faculty who obtain a Chicago card from the Card Office in Room 102 of the Administration Building prior to June 13.

Faculty and students who arrive at the Library without their Chicago Cards and guests from outside the University may visit the Privileges Office to obtain a pass for entry to Regenstein. The Privileges Office's regular hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday.
