Allow UVA Student ID access to Claude Moore Library
I live in a language house on JPA and Claude Moore Library is literally 2 minutes away. It is incredibly frustrating that I can't get into the library after regular hours with my UVA Student ID. Shouldn't all UVA students be allowed access to the library?
Claude Moore, Darden, and Law libraries have different policies than the rest of the UVA libraries in order to respond to the needs of the students in those specialized programs. Only students with a Health System ID can access Claude Moore Library after hours. Here’s the information from the site:
“Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)
Q: When is the After Hours Study Room available, and who has access to it?
A: The After Hours Study Room is open from inside the Library during all hours the Library is open, and can be entered from the hallway outside the Library during hours the Library is closed. Everyone who has a Health System ID has access to the After Hours Study Room."
This has been under review for a while....
I understand restricting areas where there are patients to those specifically affiliated with the Hospital. However, the library is study space that should be available to UVA students with a valid UVA ID.
