Tour Policy for Non-University Groups

Last Updated: 10/12/16

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 library.

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 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 or (989) 774-3076.​
