There is an annual registration fee of $50; you must renew your card
by May 1. If you are a new alumni borrower signing up after November,
the fee is prorated to $25. Your alumni library card allows you to check
out materials from the Library’s collection. Due to licensing
agreements with database providers, your card does not include access to
the online research databases .  For more information about how to
register for an alumni library card, please contact us.
