Access Policy


Printer Friendly Copy

As a publicly supported institution, OSU-Tulsa Library welcomes anyone who wishes to visit or use the library for research or educational purposes. However, the resources of the library are intended primarily for the students, faculty, and staff of OSU-Tulsa. Because OSU-Tulsa students pay tuition and a per-credit hour library fee, they have priority in using all resources. Therefore, library privileges are limited for ALL other users. See Guest Policy for additional information for our guests.

To maintain an environment conducive to study and learning, children must be accompanied by an adult. The reference staff member on duty has authority to require individuals behaving in a disorderly or disruptive manner to leave the Library.
