Hours & Access:

All Summa employees have access during the hours the library is staffed.
The library is staffed with professional librarians as follows: Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM-4:30 PM

After Hours: All physicians, residents, & fellows and, upon arrangement*, most other licensed healthcare workers have after-hours access via badge proximity reader. All other types of employees may have temporary after-hours access if needed.  See a librarian for details.*  

Badge Access:  Your Summa ID badge is required to enter via proximity badge reader.  The library is not open to the public so there is controlled access on the door.  Tap your badge to enter.  If your badge doesn't work, ring the doorbell and a staff member will let you in.  You must have your badge with you and be able to show it to the librarians, even if off-the-clock. 

If you desire & qualify for after-hours access to the library as a licensed healthcare worker, contact one of the librarians for assistance. Employees who are not licensed healthcare workers, should also seek assistance from a librarian if they need or want this kind of access.
