For a brief visit (less than 10 minutes) to the Smith Underground Library without a legal research need, patrons may pick up a visitor's pass from the Information Desk. All visitors must present ID at the entrance station. Visitors may not study or use the collection, and may only look around for a short time.

Visitors may drop by the Reading Room between 8:00 A.M. and 7:00 P.M. The Reading Room is an important study area for Michigan students. All visitors are asked to observe the rules of silence and no flash photography. Professional photography is forbidden in the Reading Room.

Visitors must comply with all posted placards and University guidelines for health & safety, and may only visit when the Underground Library and Reading Room are open (see our homepage for hours).

As of August 25, 2021, the University of Michigan requires all students, staff, faculty, and visitors to wear a face
covering that covers the mouth and nose when indoors on U-M property. See the official policy here:
