The CMU Library welcomes requests for tours from local junior
high, high school, and community college classes and from other groups
not affiliated with Central Michigan University. The tour
can include an introduction to the library building as well as a
general introduction to the
library’s many resources and services. Tours can be tailored to meet the
specific needs of a group.
We have found that tours are most effective when groups do not
exceed 25 individuals. If your group exceeds this number we may
ask to split it into two groups to allow us to provide better
service to you. We also ask that an adult representative of the visiting
school or organization remain with the group(s) during its visit to the
Please contact the library at least two weeks
before the date you wish to have the tour. This gives us time to
schedule and prepare for your event.
Please be aware that the library’s first responsibility is to CMU
students, faculty, and staff and that there may be times when our
obligation to a university class or group prevents our being able to
meet your tour needs, and that there are times during the academic year
(e.g. midterm and final examination periods) when we will not give
tours to outside groups out of respect for the quiet study needs
of our users.
To schedule a tour of the CMU
Library please contact the Research Help desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or (989) 774-3470.
PLEASE NOTE: General tours of the university
which include a visit to the library should be arranged through the CMU
Admissions Office. Contact them at email@example.com or (989) 774-3076.
