product-fullturn University library deploys turnstile-based access control systemA university library has decided to deploy a turnstile-based access control system aimed at providing better protection for UD students, faculty and staff and members of the larger community, a news report has been able to reveal.

The University of Delaware Library, which is heavily used by people throughout the state, will continue to make its rich array of resources available to all users and members of the community. Visitors should report to the new Welcome Desk, which will be located just before the turnstiles, to show photo identification and sign in to access the library. The new desk will be staffed by the UD Police Department.

“The University of Delaware made the important decision to enhance the safety of all 6,000 students, faculty and staff who enter the Morris Library every day in response to concerns expressed to University Administration by students and parents,” said Sandra Millard, interim vice provost and director of libraries. “After careful planning with the University of Delaware Police Department, turnstile procedures are in place to continue to provide access to the services, spaces, and expertise in the library that is valued by the UD community and beyond.”
