 Why Young Library Requires IDs After 10:00 p.m.

Because of the confluence of two situations:

  • Number of assaults and sex offenses in and around Young Library in previous years.
  • Students' demands to have library open 24 hours.

The library reinstated its 24-hour schedule in Fall 2005, but with stricter security guidelines in place. A comprehensive security assessment of the Young Library area was completed in summer 2004 and recommended limiting the library to electronic access from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. (i.e., having students use student IDs to gain entrance to the library). The library implemented a suitable alternative since badge access was not feasible. Access was restricted to:

  • Current UK students, faculty, staff and reciprocal college borrowers (see list below).
  • IDs would be checked manually.
  • Restricted access period was shortened to 10:00 p.m. through 6:00 a.m.

This restricted access period corresponds to the same restricted access period employed by the Medical Center.

Restricting access is common practice in libraries with extended hours. Requiring an ID to enter the building overnight is a security measure and is enforced for the safety and security of every student, staff, and faculty member in the library after 10:00 p.m. Alternatives such as having student records checked by name or address are neither practical nor safe, increasing the time one would wait to enter the building, creating congestion in the library foyer, and increasing the chances of someone giving a false address to gain entry.
