If you are a Caltech student, faculty, or staff, you can access the Millikan basement by using either elevator and swiping your card and selecting the basement floor.  If your ID card does not work, you can contact the Campus Security with your name and UID number.  You can exit the Millikan basement by the elevator or by using the door (west side).  This is an exit only door. 

If you are a visitor or a Caltech Affiliate (see Borrowing Privileges page for list of who can be a Caltech Affiliate), you can contact visit the Sherman Fairchild Library circulation desk or contact us ( or 626-395-3405) and we can facilitate pulling the material you are interested in and making it available at Sherman Fairchild Library.  

If the elevators are inoperable, please contact us immediately.
