Tour Policy for Non-University Groups

Last Updated: 2/22/2017

It is the policy of the CMU Library to welcome requests for tours from local junior high, high school, and community college classes and from other groups not formally affiliated with Central Michigan University. The library’s first responsibility is to CMU students, faculty, and staff. There may be times when our obligation to a university class or group prevents our being able to meet the tour needs of external groups. There may also be times during the academic year (for example, midterm and final examination periods) when we do not give tours to outside groups out of respect for the quiet study needs of our users. A tour can include an introduction to the physical 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. For best results, 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.

To schedule a tour of the CMU Library please contact the Research Help desk at libref@cmich.edu or by calling (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 cmuadmit@cmich.edu or (989) 774‐3076.
