Library Policies

Effective July 1, 2010:
Access Policy Regarding Students Attending Out-of-State Online Institutions
The Ida Jane Dacus Library is designed to meet the needs of matriculated students, and for the faculty and staff of Winthrop University.  The tuition of Winthrop students, in addition to library fees, enables the library to purchases materials to meet the needs of students who attend this university.

Winthrop University is happy to share the largess of its knowledge with other students.  Access for our own students is primary.  We cannot and will not compromise their access to these materials that are rightly their own, and to which we reserve the right to provide primary access.

Students who attend out-of-state online institutions (including but not limited to Strayer, Kaplan, and Phoenix), will be charged an access fee of $100 dollars.  The access card is good for six months (6).  If additional time is needed, access cards may be purchased in six month increments for $50 thereafter.  Access cards needed for one day and up to 30 days may be purchased for $25, renewable at the same price.
