Library Policy Change: Beginning December 1, 2015, Webster University Library is implementing new policies to provide added safety during late-night hours and to ensure that Webster University and Eden Seminary students, faculty, staff, and alumni have priority use of the library’s facilities and equipment.

Members of the general public may use the library from 8am to 9pm each day and will have use of two designated computers for up to two hours each day during reference desk open hours.

Students, faculty, staff, and alumni will have access to the library and all other computers during all open hours, including after 9pm with their Webster University IDs.
