A new entrance turnstile system and a Welcome Desk was implemented in the Morris Library in 2016 to continue to provide for the research needs of the community while also enhancing the safety of the hundreds of thousands of people who make use of its resources each year. The system requires that UD students, faculty and staff members tap their UD ONEcards on a card reader at the turnstiles whenever entering the Morris Library. For those who do not have a UD ONEcard, state-issued photo ID like a driver's license, or government-issued or school-issued identification will be needed to enter the Morris Library. Visitors under 16 years of age need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian with photo identification in order to sign in at the Welcome Desk and enter the Morris Library. Frequent visitors to the Morris Library who are 18 years of age or older and who do not have a ONEcard may visit the Circulation and Reserve desk to register and have their photo taken for a free Library Frequent Visitor card. Once received, this ID can then be held to the card reader at the turnstiles for easy access to the building.
The Student Multimedia Design Center, library.udel.edu/multimedia, is designed to meet the current and future needs of the increasing number of classes which involve creation of multimedia projects and presentations as a course requirement. The Center offers the space, software, equipment and expertise for all steps of multimedia creation and for practicing presentations.
