Visitor Information

Any person may visit the Veterinary Medicine Library and use materials, databases, and resources on-site. Due to licensing restrictions, the electronic resources are not accessible by non-School of Veterinary Medicine users outside of the library.

Faculty, staff, and students of LSU with a valid University identification may check out non-restricted monographs. Reserve materials, audio visual materials, and journals are restricted to loans for School of Veterinary Medicine personnel only.

Visiting Scholars, Adjunct or Locum of the School of Veterinary Medicine 

For extended privileges to access online resources, a sponsored guest account would need to be created. The sponsoring SVM department initiates the request to the Library. Upon approval, Computer Services then creates a sponsored guest account.


Visitors may enter the first driveway of the School of Veterinary Medicine building and park in any of the designated Visitor parking spaces or in any of the unmarked spaces in the large lot across the street.

Computer and Wireless Access

Library computers are available for visitor use by having the library associate login for guests. Visitors may also use their laptops or mobile devices to access the Internet by having the library associate create a temporary guest account for them.


A scanner is available free of charge near the patron computers in the main area of the Library. It is recommended that you bring a flash drive on which to save your scan(s), or pull up your web-accessible email in order to send the scan(s) to an email address.


Printing is available during Circulation/Reference Hours upon request for $0.07 per page for black and white copies, $0.25 per page for color copies using cash or check only.
