39. Access & Security

Depository libraries must ensure that their security or access polices, or those of their parent bodies, do not hinder public access to depository materials. Access policies, posting of signs, library Web pages, and public service hours must conform to this requirement. Signage and other physical facilities of the library and parent institution cannot inhibit public access, and all library employees must be aware of the free, public access requirements for depository resources.
