High School Visits to University of Rochester: Before Your Visit


Thank you for considering a visit to the River Campus Libraries with your High School Students! We look forward to collaborating with you. Please take a moment to fill out this Request Form so we can expedite scheduling your visit. 


Circulation & Checkout

If you would like your students to be able to borrow books and other physical materials from the River Campus Libraries, please ensure they have been approved for the RRLC Access Pass (linked below). Please note, you will need to find your school on the RRLC Access Pass List and find out who the appropriate person is to approve their RRLC accounts. 

Once they have received the RRLC Access Pass email (or you, on their behalf) only then can we create a borrower's card on our end. If you would like to speed that process, please have each student fill in our Borrower's Request Form (below) at least 48 hours in advance of your visit. 

Computer and Database Access

Students may bring their own devices or we can request a computer lab for your use (with enough advanced notice).

In either case, students will need a username and password to log into certain databases, which your coordinating U of R librarian will provide.

We encourage students to save the items they find by downloading them to a personal device, cloud location, or flash drive. After their visit, any access they had to our databases will expire. Please prepare your students by designating a location for this.
