Leland Speed Library extends its resources to community users, although its primary commitment is to the students, faculty, and staff of Mississippi College. People from Clinton and the greater Jackson area are welcome to use the facilities and collections with some restrictions.
Users under the tenth grade must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Reference service provided to community users is limited to answering basic directional questions.
Community users may use MICAL (the online catalog) and the Library's physical books. Printing is not available to community users
Limited borrowing privileges from the Leland Speed Library collection are granted upon purchase of a Community User card. Members of the Clinton community, students and faculty from other universities, and M.C. alumni may purchase a Community User card at the Mainn Desk for an annual fee.
Fines and replacement fees are charged to the cardholder for overdue and/or unreturned items checked out in the Community User's name.
Community User Fee Applications and policies are available at the Main Desk.
