Access Privileges


KSL is open to current CWRU students, faculty and staff. For the health and safety of our patrons, the library will operate on CWRU ID card access only. To enter the building, you must have a valid CWRU ID card. Those without a CWRU ID card, including prospective students and family members (including partners, parents and children) may not visit at this time.


Due to COVID-19, there is no visitor or alumni access at this time.


The Cleveland area offers two award-winning public library systems that may be able to fulfill some of your needs at this time. 

Cuyahoga County Public Library is a member of SearchOhio and is connected to OhioLINK (and CWRU) in that way.

Cleveland Public Library, known as the "People's University," and the other Clevnet libraries serve the broader Northeast and Northwest Ohio regions.
