Services for Community Members

Community members are welcome to visit our campus and peruse our print collections and many of our online resources.
Remote access to our online resources is restricted to current students, faculty and staff, but North Carolina residents may access a rich collection of online resources via 
NC Live. Contact your local public library for more information. 

Visitors are welcome to use the 4 public workstations available at the Visitor Research Center on the main floor. Please limit your use to 30 minutes per day as these stations are in high demand.

Visitors may use personal devices to connect to our wireless network using these instructions.

North Carolina residents wishing to check out materials are able to do so by becoming a Guest Borrower.

In order to print or make copies, you will need to purchase a Visitor Copy Card from the Circulation Services Desk. You may add additional funds to your Visitor Copy Cards at the Onecard Office in Highsmith Union. You can find UNC Asheville printing information here.


The library is located on the university quadrangle in the center of the UNC Asheville campus. 

Up to date visitor parking information is available at the UNC Asheville Parking Services website, including information on obtaining a visitor parking pass and locations to park.
