Guest Computer Access Policy

The primary purpose of the University Libraries is to serve the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Memphis and they have first priority for access to our resources and facilities. However, we do have a limited number of computers which may be used by visiting students, faculty and community members.


Guests wanting to use university computers in the Ned R. McWherter Library must have a Computer Use Card, which can be obtained at the Check-Out Desk on the first floor of the library. Identification will be required. Once the card has been issued, guests may ask an employee at the Research and Information Services Desk in the first floor Learning Commons of the McWherter Library to log them on to one of six guest computers, on a space-available basis. Adults accompanied by children may request one additional guest log-in for children, if space is available. Guests under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.


Guest accounts are limited to one log-in per day for up to two hours during regular McWherter Library hours.


Guests may access the Internet, our information resources, and basic Microsoft Office programs. Guests may print by purchasing and adding money to a copy card. Guests should bring a USB drive or other storage device because nothing can be saved on the computers.
