Visitor Information

The mission of the Mills College Library is to support the educational, teaching, research and administrative needs of Mills College. All faculty, currently-enrolled students, staff and alums of the College, in addition to participants in select Mills-affiliated programs, have the privilege of using the Library, borrowing materials, and using computer databases and services. The aforementioned groups have different levels of access. We require a current Mills ID or alumna/us card, available from the AAMC, to be shown for Library entry.

Access to members of the public, including students at other institutions, is limited to research using specialized materials only available at Mills. Inquiries should be made to the Reference Desk (510.430.2385) or the Special Collections Librarian (510.430.2047) during regular business hours. The Library will make every effort to meet the needs of scholars for limited, short-term access to the collections. In addition, the Library’s web-based catalog (library.mills.edu) is available for consultation at any time. Many circulating materials from Mills Collections may be available through interlibrary loan. Please contact your local library to request this service.

Dog Policy

Dogs registered with Public Safety and/or Student Access and Support Services are welcome in the Library as applicable by the appropriate policy: SASS policy for students and Public Safety policy for faculty, staff, alums, and guests. However, we reserve the right to ask loud or otherwise disruptive dogs and their owners to leave the building.

These policies are periodically reviewed and are subject to change without prior notice.
