Information for Alumni


Alumni may register for guest borrowing privileges by presenting a Rutgers Alumni Card and photo ID at the circulation desk of any Rutgers library. If you are a recent Rutgers graduate and have not yet received your Rutgers Alumni Card in the mail, a photo ID is sufficient identification for one year after your graduation date. Information about the Rutgers Alumni Card is available at the
Rutgers University Alumni Association website. If you have questions or have lost your card please call 877-253-7100.

Individuals who cannot satisfy their information requirements through their local public library, organizational library, or interlibrary loan may purchase guest borrowing privileges by submitting an application form [PDF] and $100 annual fee by mail to:

Faculty and students from other higher education institutions where there are reciprocal borrowing agreements in place should contact the library of their home institution for appropriate documentation and identification prior to visiting the circulation desk of any Rutgers library.
