Alumni, Visitor, and Retiree Library Services & Access

This page provides information and policies for FIU Visitor, Alumni, and Retired Faculty & Staff.

Summer 2021

Visiting the Library

FIU students, faculty, alumni, and visitors may visit the FIU Libraries without a reservation. Remember to bring your FIU OneCard or a government issued ID to swipe into the building or check in at the Guest Services Desk. The library will operate on limited capacity; access to the building is on a first-come, first-served basis. Our Public Safety Technicians will make frequent rounds to monitor compliance with P3 protocols. Find full details here:

Staying Safe in the Library

We will continue to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and implement COVID-19 mitigation measures. Everyone is encouraged to continue wearing face coverings indoors, given that they are an effective layer of protection from COVID-19. Please read the university's Panthers Protecting Panthers guidelines for additional information.

Ultimately, the most important step you can take is to get vaccinated. There are multiple locations locally where you may receive a vaccine.
