The Library is pleased to support our students and faculty in their work. We will consider requests for student and faculty filming and photography projects in the Library that meet the criteria below. At this time, we cannot provide space for film or photography projects for commercial purposes or to anyone other than Webster and Eden students, faculty, and staff. Please see guidelines below for filming and photography projects sponsored by university offices or conducted as part of university business.
Filming or photography in the Library that is sponsored by university offices or conducted as part of official university business is explicitly allowed at all times when the library is open. Filming or photography using personal devices or small cameras does not require advance permission. If your project requires larger equipment or a film crew, we ask that you contact a member of the library’s Management Team (contact information below) so that we can assist you with the logistics of your project.

Webster University Library supports the teaching, coursework, research, and lifelong learning needs of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the local community. To meet the needs of our constituents, the Library’s collection and services encompass a broad and diverse range of ideas, voices, and viewpoints. The presence of materials, programs, events, or displays in the library collection does not indicate that Webster University Library endorses the content of these items.
Webster University Library recognizes the right of individuals to question library materials, programs, events, and displays. If a student, faculty, or staff member wishes for the Library to reconsider the inclusion or placement of a particular title, program, event, or display, they can fill out and submit a Request for Reconsideration form (below).
Once an official Request for Reconsideration is received, the Library’s Management Team will review the material, program, event, or display and determine whether it conforms to the Library’s mission and policies. Once a decision has been made, the requester will be notified in writing. Should the requester wish to appeal a decision, a request in writing should be sent to the Dean of University Libraries.
Request for Reconsideration Forms will only be accepted and reviewed when submitted by current Webster University students, faculty, and staff.
Request for Reconsideration forms will not be accepted unless they are filled out in their entirety. Each Request for Reconsideration form is limited to one item/program/event/display. If a duplicate reconsideration request is submitted within a six-month period, the first decision will stand.
If you wish to request reconsideration of library materials, programs, events, or displays, complete and return this form to the Dean of University Libraries at Webster University Library, 470 E. Lockwood Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63119.
The person completing this form must be a current Webster University student, faculty, or staff member.
