The Chemistry Library is open to the public on weekdays fro 9AM-5PM. Visitors must enter the building from the south-most door on the 34th St. porch and sign in with the security guard after displaying a valid photo ID card. Penn affiliates may simply present their PennCards to the guard for inspection. A visible PennCard must be worn above the waist at all times while in the building.
Weekdays from 5pm to 10pm
Access is restricted to holders of department-validated PennCards, which must be worn in a visible location above the waist at all times while in the building.
Access is by validated PennCard only. PennCards should be worn in a visible location above the waist at all times while in the building.
To validate your PennCard:
Cards are validated by advance arrangement with the Chemistry Department. Go to the Chemistry Department Office (first floor), Monday - Friday, 9am - 4pm, bringing your PennCard, and request access to the Chemistry Building for all hours that the library is open. Alternatively, you may e-mail Judith Currano with your name and ID number, and she will forward the information to the Department.
Validation is tied to the life of the PennCard, so, if you get a new card, you must have it revalidated.
The entrance to the Chemistry Library is barrier free. A ramp to enter the building is located on the north side of the building on 34th Street. There are elevators in the main lobby that access to the fifth floor.
