Landman Library

Library Access and Visitor's Policy

All Arcadia University faculty, staff and students are issued an Arcadia photo identification card which identifies them as member of our University community. This photo identification card may be obtained at the Office of Public Safety. This office is located in the ground level area of Dilworth Hall next to Heinz Hall.

Access to the Library is restricted to University members with their Arcadia University identification card after 5 p.m. weekdays, and all hours over the weekend. 

Arcadia University constituents without a current AU identification card may be denied admission to the Library after 5 p.m.. If their card has been lost or stolen, they will be expected to present themselves to the Public Safety Office to obtain their card before they return to the Library.

Please also note that if an item is listed in our catalog as being “on reserve” for a specific course, only students in that course should check out the item.

The study rooms are for the express use of current Arcadia students and are on a first come first serve basis. 

No one under the age of 18 will be allowed in the library unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. 


Arcadia alumni may access Landman Library from 8 am until 5 pm, Monday through Friday, and must sign in at the circulation desk. Alumni can obtain a library card from the Alumni Office in Blankely Hall in order to borrow print books.

Internet access, as well as access to our online databases and resources, are available in the building using the four Macintosh computers available on the first floor of the Library. Alumni do not have access to Interlibrary loan or any online databases and resources.
