Building entrances are located on the west side of the building, facing the Sombrilla (the campus courtyard) and on the east side of the building facing the Main Building. The Sombrilla side has both first and second floor public entrances. The Main Building side has just a first floor entrance.

Public elevators provide access between all four floors of the building.

To access the library between the hours of 6 a.m. - 10 p.m., use the Main Building route. For after-hours access, use the Business Building route. Both routes are described below.
