*NOTE: Due to vendor licensing restrictions, access to many of the Libraries' databases and other electronic resources from outside a University library (e.g., from home or office) is limited to current students (in credit-earning courses), staff, and faculty at the University of Minnesota -- Twin Cities. This is a non-negotiable part of the contracts we sign (and there are no fee-for-access options for persons not affiliated with the University).

Members of the public, however, are welcome to use the U of M Libraries' electronic resources "on-site". We have structured our licensing agreements with database providers to make this possible. The public is also welcome in our libraries for use of on-site collections and most facilities. One does not need a card or pass to enter and use the Libraries.
