By Chris Pollette, IMLS Resident Librarian
With all the changes going on at the Robert W. Woodruff Library this summer, it might be easy for returning students and faculty to overlook the brand-new turnstiles at the library entrance. The new turnstiles were installed almost immediately after the end of the spring term, and in addition to looking nicer and working more smoothly than the old models, the new turnstiles give patrons with Prox cards the opportunity to touch their Emory IDs to the sensor, rather than having to dig their cards out of their wallets first. If your Emory ID isn’t a Prox card, don't worry. There are magnetic strip readers on the new turnstiles, so you can still gain access to the library.
On the front of the new turnstiles, you’ll see two lights: one red, the other green. When you touch your Prox card to the sensor or swipe the magnetic strip, after a second or two the red light will go out and the green will come on. Once that happens, you can come in!
