Borrowing

Your alumni card is your library card. Bring your alumni card to any library service desk for activation; contact any library location for annual renewal.

U of S Alumni may
  • Borrow up to 10 regular loan items in person from any branch for 30 days
  • Renew borrowed items twice, in person at the library or by logging into your Library Account
  • Request Interlibrary Loans (available for a charge)

Recalled Loans     
You will be notified by email when an item you have borrowed has been recalled.  Recalled items must be returned by the date specified on the recall notice to avoid late fees of $2/day per item.

Reserve Materials    
Access to reserve materials varies among libraries.  Please check with the library location to see what access you may have.
