University alumni may apply for an identification card that will grant access to the Library.  Alumni who wish to borrow books may purchase borrowing privileges for 50% of the standard borrowing fee cost for visitors. The fee for borrowing is set annually, in July, and is subject to change. Contact the Library Privileges Office in Firestone for more information at (609) 258-5737. 

Neither the access nor borrowing privilege will enable alumni to access the Library’s licensed electronic resources from outside the Library.

The length of borrowing privileges for alumni varies depending on the collection.  The chart below defines the borrowing privileges for which alumni are eligible.
