Visits from Non-University Groups


Kresge Library is designed to serve the needs of the students, faculty and staff at Oakland University. At times students from high schools or community colleges may visit and use the library's resources.These tours or field trips will be arranged by the Coordinator of the Information Literacy Group and are subject to the guidelines below:

  • Group size should be limited to a maximum of 30. There should be a minimum of one supervising adult for every 15 students. Teachers and supervising adults should remain with the students and should be prepared to assist the students with their research needs.

  • Out of consideration for other library users, visiting groups are expected to behave in an appropriate manner.

  • Visits will not be scheduled during periods of heavy use by Oakland students and library instruction, usually the first six to eight weeks of the fall and winter terms (September-October and January-February). In addition, visits will not be scheduled during final examination periods. Any other times may be scheduled for visits at the discretion of the Coordinator of the Information Literacy Group.

  • Students should have a well-defined and workable topic. They should also have such basic library skills as how to use a catalog, how to read a citation. High school librarians and students are encouraged to access our on-line catalog in advance of the trip so that students may come with printouts in hand.

  • Visits from elementary and middle school classes are discouraged since, for the most part, the materials at OU are inappropriate for these students.

  • Visiting groups are responsible for understanding and complying with the Library's policies, including Children in the OU Libraries and Computing Access for the Public.
