The Alumni Library Card

Apply for an alumni library card at the circulation desk of any Rutgers library. You will need to bring your Rutgers Alumni Card and a photo ID for identification. If you are a recent graduate, a photo ID is sufficient identification for one year after your graduation date.

We will issue you a library card, barcode, and temporary password. You can use the card to check out up to 25 books for a 6-week loan period from any Rutgers University library (except for the law libraries in Camden and Newark). Use your barcode and password to sign in to your QuickSearch account, where you can view a list of the books you have checked out and renew your books online.

Alumni library cards are good for one year and need to be renewed annually.
