Access, Borrowing and Delivery

Establish your Library Account, Barcode and PIN

To access the Libraries’ electronic resources or borrow books, you must establish a library account. You can register for an account by visiting or calling any library circulation desk. Once established, your account will be renewable annually.

Remote Access to the Libraries' Resources

Emeriti may access the Libraries’ licensed electronic resources from off-campus by logging in with their library barcode and PIN (see above).

Borrowing Privileges

Items from the circulating collections are loaned to faculty until the end of the semester. You may renew circulating materials at the end of the term, unless they are recalled for another borrower. For more information click here.
