The principal mission of Marietta College’s Legacy Library is to serve the students, faculty, and staff of the college. Guest access to library services, including library computers and network, is extended to visitors as a privilege to the extent that it does not interfere with the library’s primary mission.

Marietta College students and employees have priority use of 1st floor computers. During peak periods of computer use, we ask that you use a computer on another floor to accommodate our priority users.

A photo ID and proof of current address must be presented to register. Names and address of guest users are be recorded in the guest access log at the library reference desk.

Use of library computers by guest account holders is limited to 2 hours maximum per day.

Computers must be used in accordance with Legacy Library and Marietta College policies. Any violation may lead to loss of these privileges.

Individuals with personal laptop computers may use the library’s wireless network. A guest access account is still required for wireless network authentication. The 2-hour maximum use per day rule does not apply to guest users with personal laptops.

Printing is available for a charge of $.10/page. Printing charges are payable at the library circulation desk.

Guest accounts cannot be used for checking out library materials. If a community user wishes to check out library materials, they may be issued a community library card under the conditions stated in the library’s community patron policies. Community users cannot check out library-owned laptops nor can they access library electronic resources remotely.

As a Federal Depository Library, Legacy Library provides free access for the general public to the U.S. government electronic resources during all hours Legacy Library is open. Nevertheless, public access is subject to the policies stated above.
