We are pleased to welcome you and your students to the University Libraries. Your students are potential University of Wyoming students so we want to make their visit here successful. This guide is designed to make your student's experience positive and productive.

Please complete our School Visit Planning form as soon as possible to schedule instruction and tours for your students. It is also important that you have students complete the Parental Permission form (below) and send the documents to Coe Library Circulation before your visit.

We strongly encourage you to work with your school or public librarian to ensure that your students take full advantage of the numerous WYLD databases available through Wyoming public and school libraries.

Preparing for Your Visit

It is important to do several things BEFORE you visit.

  • Let us know when you are coming. Two weeks advance notice is preferable.
  • Have a parent or guardian complete a Parental Permission form and make a copy of their government issued photo ID.  Then mail or fax these 2 items for each student to us. This will enable us to have the library cards ready at the circulation desk at the time of your arrival.
  • Arrange to have adequate adult supervision for your visit. At least one adult per ten students is recommended.
  • Contact Coe Library Circulation: 307-766-3190,, or fax 307-766-2510
