Late Night Swipe Card Only Access

Please note that during the extended library hours of reading and exam weeks (Wednesday, April 24-Monday, May 6, 2019), you will need to swipe into the library using your Seminary ID card. The card reader is located to the left of the front door. You will not be able to enter without using your card from 9 p.m.-1 a.m.

Our security strategy prohibits service desk staff from opening the door for anyone attempting to enter the library without a Seminary ID once the doors have been locked.

Circulation Desk Operations

During the hours of swipe card only access, Circulation Desk operations will consist of checking in materials and receiving returns, including reserve books. Special loan periods for reserve books are in effect during extended hours.

Many thanks to the students working at the Circulation Desk. They make extended hours possible at this busy time of the semester.
