Widener Library installs card access system

Harvard ID holders need only to swipe their cards through the box on the top of the turnstile to enter the building. The card access system was installed as part of an ongoing, multi-faceted security program implemented by the library administration to provide improved protection for staff, users, and collections throughout the eleven libraries in the Harvard College Library. Although originally scheduled for installation at the end of the Widener Stacks Renovation project in the spring of 2002, the card access system was installed earlier in response to the University's heightened security measures following September 11. The machines currently in use will be replaced with permanent fixtures when the main lobby and the Massachusetts Avenue entrances are remodeled.
