Access and Service Policy for Unaffiliated Library Users

Hours and Sawyer Library Access

Visitors unaffiliated with Husson University may use the collections of the W. Tom and Bonnie Sawyer Library in house Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.  During evenings and weekends, minors and unaffiliated users must be accompanied by an individual with a University ID unless permission is obtained from the Director of the Library, Susanna Pathak, who can be reached by phone at (207) 941-7187 or by email at pathaks@husson.edu. All unaffiliated users must sign in at the Service Desk upon arrival and provide identification.

Computer Use Policies

Use of library computer workstations in the library and in Peabody Hall is restricted to Husson users with login credentials. Visitors may use one of three wall mounted computers providing access to the Sawyer Library website and Minerva catalog. Visitors with their own computers may access the internet using the Guest wireless network.

Electronic Journals and Databases

Access to electronic journals, e-books and databases is not possible due to licensing restrictions and/or computer workstation login restrictions. Marvel is available to Maine residents at no charge and may be accessed through computers using the Guest wireless network.

Services

Inquiries about the collections and requests for information services should be made to library staff.

Community Borrowers

Unaffiliated users may obtain a community borrower card without charge. See Circulation Policy for details on borrowing, loan periods, and renewals.

All library users are asked to handle library materials with care. The Community Borrower card does not entitle the bearer to interlibrary loan or other specialized services available to Husson University affiliated users.

Effective April 6, 2017
