New Library Access Policy

The University Library and the Law Library now require that all users present ID on entrance to gain access. Members of the Regent University community must show their Regent ID. All other users will be required to present a valid form of ID and sign in. An additional check-in process will be required for non-law school users who wish to access the Law Library.

After 8:00 p.m., both libraries will only be open to Regent University students, staff, and faculty and will be closed to the public. All Regent students, faculty and staff will be required to have a unique Library access card in order to enter the building after 8:00 p.m. during open hours. Library access cards may be requested from Student Services.

These new procedures will help provide a safer environment for Regent University.

Regular library operational hours are:

  • Sunday 2:00 p.m. to midnight
  • Mon – Thurs 7:30 a.m. to midnight
  • Friday 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Check the library hours webpage for changes in hours during breaks.

Special rules will be in effect for access to the Library during Commencement activities.

Beginning Thursday morning, entry to the Library will be through the rear door, and beginning Thursday at 7:00pm, only current students, staff, and faculty with a valid Regent ID card will be allowed to enter.

On-Campus & Online Library Help April 29-May 2

The last week of the spring semester is upon us, and the Librarians want to help you finish successfully. From Monday (April 29) through Thursday (May 2), the Library has scheduled multiple times when research librarians will be on hand to help you find the best books, articles, and media for your final papers and projects.

We are calling our on-campus sessions Study Haven and our online sessions Study Hangouts. Join us and get answers for your thorniest research and citation questions.

Visualize data with Statista

The Library now has a subscription to Statista, one of the world’s most successful providers of statistics and quantitative data. What makes Statista unique is that all of its statistics and data are visualized in intuitive charts and graphs that can be exported into reports. The platform contains over 1,000,000 statistics on more than 80,000 topics. It also provides market forecasts, company and industry reports, and consumer market outlooks.

Statista is a multi-disciplinary resource where all Regent users doing quantitative research for their projects are likely to find relevant data. But be forewarned: the platform can be quite addictive, and if you’re not careful, you may find yourself browsing Statista after you’ve found the information you were seeking in the first place!

Explore Creativity with First Fridays

This semester, on the first Friday of each month, the Library will host an informal series that will celebrate creativity and innovation. This will be an exciting way for students and faculty to meet innovators who are making a positive impact in our world.

The series will kick off this Friday with The Shoe That Grows™ founder and Regent alumnus Kenton Lee. Doris Gomez, Dean of the School of Business and Leadership, will introduce Kenton as he joins us online to tell how a walk with some kids in Kenya led to a simple but ingenious idea. The Shoe That Grows™ is a Patent for Humanity Award Winner this year.

The event will be held at the Library globe on the first floor on September 7 at 12:30.
