UofM alumni, Tennessee residents, and visiting scholars can apply for a Community Special Privileges Card and check out books, use microform/microfiche, and access library databases on guest computers. Bring your completed application to the Check-Out Desk on the 1st floor of McWherter Library to receive a card.

The guest computer logins are limited to one two-hour login per day. Bring your Community Privilege Card to the Research and Information Services Desk on the 1st floor of McWherter Library. Guest computer logins are available during the following time periods:

Monday-Thursday: 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
Friday: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saturday: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm 
Sunday: 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm 

Off-campus/Remote database access is only available to current students, faculty, and staff. However, Tennessee residents have free access to Tennessee Electronic Library (TEL) databases.

Local high school students can apply for a High School Special Privileges Card for research access. Referral by their high school librarian is required; if the student is under the age of 18, parental approval is also required. 

Reciprocal institution students and faculty should bring their institutional ID when submitting an application. The individual's school ID will be used instead of being issued a Community Special Privileges Card.
