Note: There are service and access changes in place due to COVID-19. Please view the Using the Library page on the library website for the most up-to-date information.

Library Services are currently available only to JHU affiliates. 


Coming In

Access to the Eisenhower Library and Brody Learning Commons is granted to any person aged 16 or older. You must show a current, valid photo ID issued by a government agency or college/university.

  • Visitors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. 
  • Members of the public are welcome to visit and use the Eisenhower and Brody (which includes Special Collections and the cafe), except during exams; those hours will be posted at the entrances during those times, or you may call 410-516-8335 to ask.

Computers and Internet

  • Within the library, visitors can connect their laptops to the Internet via the University's "JHGuestnet" wireless network connection. Guestnet will not provide access to the library's electronic resources.
  • There are six computers on M-level that do not require a login. We ask that you limit your use of them to two hours to provide access to a greater number of patrons. They are located on M-level under the stairs, just past the entrance.

Borrowing Privileges -- See this list for who may borrow books and how to do it.
