Located on the 2nd Floor of the Otto G. Richter Library, the Faculty Reading Room provides a quiet study and research space reserved for use by the faculty of the University of Miami and graduate students writing their doctoral dissertations.  The Reading Room is secured by an electronic swipe-card mechanism.  A Cane Card must be inserted into the lock to open the facility.  UM faculty members’ Cane Cards have been pre-programmed to allow entry.

Students writing doctoral dissertations must request a letter or email from their advisor or department chair and submit it to the Access Services Manager at the Richter Library circulation desk.

Please call 305-284-3233 or email richter.circulation@miami.edu for more information or to report problems.
