All you ever wanted to know about visitors

Visitors: Computer use and printing


The rules concerning which visitors need to have their IDs scanned and to pay for printing are as follows: 

Swarthmore students, faculty/staff (and their spouses!), and alumni

    • These patrons are able to use our desktop computers without having a photo ID scanned
    • These patrons are able to print free of charge


Bryn Mawr/Haverford students, faculty/staff and alumni

    • These patrons are able to use our desktop computers without having a photo ID scanned
    • These patrons are able to print free of charge

**Please note: if the patron is a Bryn Mawr or Haverford student taking a class at Swarthmore you should advise them to go to Beardsley to have an account created for them


Visitors from the area (even those with borrowing privileges)

    • These patrons must have their photo ID scanned and saved before they may use our desktop computers
    • These patrons will be charged 10¢ per page and should pay at the Circulation desk

**Please be sure to remind visitors of the following:

    • The computers near the printers are reserved for students, faculty and staff.
    • The visitor login will log off at 10PM or whenever the library closes - whichever happens first. Please ask patrons to save all of their work and email it to themselves before this time.
