Visitor Information

Several Emory Libraries locations are accepting visitor requests beginning January 2021.


Emory University is now permitting a few essential visitors under the revised Visitor Policy During COVID-19.

Permission for visitors must be APPROVED and align with all health and safety measures in place.

As a guiding principle, if a visitor’s activity could be performed remotely, such as giving a speech or scholarly presentation, then the visitor should not come to campus.

Approval Process

Potential visitors must have a faculty or staff sponsor (a formally designated Emory university contact) and seek approval from the appropriate library director.

The Emory sponsor submits a Visitor Application, and the designated reviewer for the Library must approve.

If approved, visitors will be contacted with details on their visit and be required to sign a compact that elaborates the requirements and expectations for being on campus, including contact tracing information.

Please expect a turnaround time of at least 5 days for the approval process. Once approved, the visitor should schedule an appointment for their visit and either their sponsor or representative will greet the visitor at the library entrance at the designated appointment time and location.
