Important Information


Building Hours & UofL ID Requirements

Until further notice the library will be open Monday through Friday from 8am to 6pm (Closed Weekends). Access to the building is restricted to the UofL community. A UofL ID card is required to enter the building. If you are not affiliated with UofL or are a Metroversity student, please call the library at (502) 852-5771 to arrange guest access.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: In an effort to improve security measures within the Kornhauser Library, we will be implementing a new card reader system for our faculty and students.  The card reader (located on the main circulation desk to your immediate left as you enter the library space) will need to be scanned with your UofL ID card before you enter into Kornhauser Library.  Once you scan your card, you will see either a green light, meaning you’re good to go on in or a red light, meaning you’ll need to stay by and let staff assist you with access.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We ask for your patience as we work together to improve library access and security.
