Guests and Alumni
Guests with specific academic affiliations are eligible for borrowing privileges. We have paid options for all other guests. Alumni pay a reduced annual fee.
With all guest borrowing privileges, there is no limit on the number of items that can be checked out at one time, and items can be renewed.
Guest privileges do not include access to online resources or delivery services like interlibrary loan.
