Researchers from Other Colleges & Universities
Everyone is welcome to consult the Library’s print and electronic collections by visiting the Library.
We also have reciprocal agreements that provide borrowing at no charge to faculty, students, and staff at those academic institutions.
Researchers will need to visit the ID & Privileges Office to be issued a borrower card. All researchers from other institutions must have a valid, government-issued photo ID and valid institutional ID to be issued a borrower card.
