Alumni/ae Membership

An alumni/ae of UWest may apply for a library card for a discounted annual fee of $60.00.

How do I apply for a library card? You will need to apply in person at the library during regular office hours. Please ask a staff member to give you the application form. After you fill out the form, we will need to verify your alumni/ae status. Once verified, you will need to provide payment and take a picture at the Student Life office to get the ID card (Student Life Office is closed from 12pm-1pm for lunch). You will receive your card thereafter. Please be prepared to present ID card for checkout.

Can I access the library's wireless system? Our wireless system is available only for current faculty, staff, and students. You may inquire at the circulation desk with your library card to obtain access to the general computer workstations and use the Internet.

Can I access the library's databases off-campus? Currently, our licensing agreements with the databases prohibit its remote use outside of current faculty, staff, and students. However, several database such as JSTOR (Register & Read) and Digital Dictionary of Buddhism allow limited guest use. Restricted materials will be show a UWest icon--see legend
