Starting with the spring term on January 7, 2019, all patrons will be required to swipe their ONE Cards to enter Sterne Library all the hours that the library is open. This includes the INTO entrance on the second level up the ramp.

At Lister Hill Library, access between the ground floor and the Library space on the first and second floors has been eliminated. Access the ground floor at street level and use the front elevator or stairwell in the lobby to access the Library on the first floor or plaza level.

Non-UAB visitors will be allowed into the libraries during specific hours and an intercom system is now available. At Sterne, the intercom is between the doors on the 13th street side of the library. At LHL, the intercom is in the 1st floor lobby by the entrance.

All current faculty, staff, and students at UAB will have access to the libraries with their valid ONE Card. Requests do not need to be made for access.

Special hours may apply around holidays and breaks. See the Access policy and hours on the library website for more details.
