The Library serves many clienteles and, while the UConn community is our primary user group, we are also open to the general public. Visitors will find a welcoming atmosphere with internet connected terminals and over 80,000 books which can be consulted without charge. An annual Community Borrowers Card can be purchased for $50 ($35 for Alumni Association members) which allows the general public to borrow books from any of the University of Connecticut Libraries (including libraries in Groton, Stamford, Storrs, Torrington, Waterbury, and West Hartford — but not the Health Center or School of Law). Certain other services, such as inter-library lending, are not available to the public.
It is also important to know that UConn, like many academic institutions, has been taking steps to increase its network security. Visitors wishing to use our internet connected terminals are now required to register at a special “Guest Registration Kiosk.” More information is available at this link: http://guestreghelp.uconn.edu/guests.html
When visiting the Trecker Library be sure to use our campus visitor’s parking lot near the corner of Asylum Avenue and Trout Brook Drive. We are short walk away in the large building facing Asylum Avenue.
So, please Be Our Guest!
William Uricchio – Library Director
