Visitor Access Policy

1/13/2004, Revised 12/2010

In order to maximize the availability of study space and materials for members of the Marquette community, as well as to ensure that only approved Marquette users have access to the facility, the following is the access policy for the Raynor Memorial Libraries:

MARQUETTE STUDENTS, FACULTY, STAFF AND ADMINISTRATORS

Marquette students, faculty, staff and administrators must present a valid Marquette ID to enter the turnstiles and are not allowed to “swipe” in other users. Individuals having problems with access through the turnstile should see the Library representative at the visitor registration counter.



Unless otherwise noted, library hours for guests and limited research pass holders are: *

Monday - Thursday
Friday
Saturday
Sunday

9:00 AM - 10:00 PM
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Noon - 5:00 PM
Noon - 10:00 PM

* Hours may vary during holidays, breaks, and summer sessions.


GUESTS OF MARQUETTE STUDENTS, FACULTY, STAFF AND ADMINISTRATORS

Guests accompanied by a valid Marquette ID holder will be admitted to the library after submitting a valid photo ID, which must be left at the registration counter.  Guests will be issued a guest pass that they must carry on them at all times. The Marquette “host” is responsible for the actions of their guests while inside the library and must be with them for the duration of their visit.

MARQUETTE ALUMNI

Marquette Alumni must show an alumni card and photo ID for entrance. Alumni without a valid Marquette alumni card can have their alumni status verified at the visitor registration counter. Alumni are eligible for on-site access to library resources and limited borrowing privileges (see Alumni Card Borrowing Privileges for further information). The alumni card allows access to more than 3500 journals through the University's partnership with EBSCOhost via MUCONNECT.

ANNUAL VISITOR PASS

Members of the public with a demonstrated and continuing research need can apply for a library card that will allow on-site access to library resources and limited borrowing privileges (see Courtesy Card Borrowing Privileges for further information). This card does not allow for off-campus access to online databases. The cost for the pass is $50/year, plus $5 for a Marquette photo ID. The research pass is valid for one year, at which time the patron must reapply. For further information and the online application form, please see Application for Annual Visitor Pass.

LIMITED RESEARCH PASS

Individuals with a limited, yet demonstrated research need, can request a one-day guest pass. This pass will be issued only after the potential user demonstrates a clear research need, submits a valid photo ID that must be left at the counter, and pays a $5.00 fee.  Guests will be issued a guest pass that they must carry on them at all times. The pass must be turned into library staff to retrieve their ID and will be good for that day only. The university reserves the right to deny the application of any requestor, and access privileges can be revoked by the university at any time.

VISITORS TO THE J.R.R. TOLKIEN DISPLAY / DEPARTMENT OF SPECIAL COLLECTIONS

Individuals interested in viewing the display of Tolkien materials must provide a valid photo ID that will be kept at Raynor's visitor registration counter. A library staff member will escort all non-campus visitors to and from the Department of Special Collections. Due to limited hours and staffing, appointments are encouraged and access will be granted only when staff time permits.

ADMISSIONS AND OTHER TOURS

A Marquette tour guide or host must present a valid Marquette ID and provide the receptionist at the library registration counter with the number of people on the tour. Access for such tours is limited to the public areas of the library.

CONFERENCES AND PUBLIC EVENTS

Members of the public attending conferences and public events will be provided identification badges that must be worn at all times.

Cooperative Access Program (CAP)

Marquette University Libraries, the Medical College of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee have developed (CAP) Cooperative Access Program for scholars to obtain local access to needed resources. Further questions? Call the Circulation Desk at (414) 288-7555.
