Local School Visits

The Dartmouth College and its Library value our relationship with the Upper Valley community and the region's schools.

Library Use by Student Groups Outside of the Dartmouth Community

  • We recognize the positive effect, for example, a visit to our Library can have on high school students anticipating the move to college-level work. We are eager to play a role in this educational opportunity whenever possible. We also take seriously our role in the education process of our Dartmouth students and know that their needs must be our priority.
  • Consequently, the use of Baker-Berry Library for research by student groups not affiliated with Dartmouth College is limited to the College's intersessions, or those weeks when the College is not in session. This policy affects high school student groups as well as any other non-Dartmouth student groups. This policy is in place to insure Dartmouth students have unimpeded access to the computers and the collections during term, especially during midterms and the last few weeks of each term when they are studying for exams and researching and writing papers.

Arranging Your Visit

  • Teachers of high school classes that wish to visit the library during an intersession, including weekends, must contact Baker-Berry Library at least two weeks in advance. Please send an email to Baker-Berry Library Research & Instructional Services with a description of your visit request. In the email, indicate if you wish for your students to have borrowing privileges at the time of your visit.
