About the Library
Filming and photography in the Central University Libraries (Fondren Library Center or Hamon Arts Library) are only permitted with prior request. Permission may be granted to SMU students, faculty, and staff who wish to film in the library to fulfill SMU-related assignments. For non-SMU requests, see below.
Students, faculty, and staff filming in the Central University Libraries are subject to the following:
Requesters must complete and submit the Film Request Form to the Fondren Library Center Circulation Desk or Hamon Arts Library Circulation Desk for approval at least 5 business days prior to the filming date. Requesters must also submit a signed Release Form for every participant that will be filmed in the project in the library facility at the Fondren or Hamon circulation desks.
Requests for filming and photography in any CUL Library by or for organizations or individuals outside SMU must be approved by the dean and director of the Central University Libraries or the dean's delegate.
