Services for Community Members

Community members and visitors are welcome to use the library’s collections and services for research and study.

Resources available to community members

Resources available include public computers with access to the Internet and basic software such as word processing and photo editing; books; reference materials; electronic resources; and current periodicals and newspapers.

How to check out materials from the library

To check out books and other materials from the library, you must have a Community Borrowers Card. See also the borrowing privileges for community members.

Services not available to community members

Some library services are not available to community members: interlibrary loan (ILL), course reserves, databases or materials restricted by licensing agreements, and some media materials. During regular hours, the library may give priority to university-affiliated users. During late night hours, the library is available for students, faculty, and staff.

Other services provided for special groups

We also provide services for area teachers (K-12), summer groups (ASU-affiliated and non-affiliated groups), and visiting scholars.
