Borrowing Privileges

Tags alumnae



At least for the Spring 2021 semester, the College is limiting access to campus to current students, faculty, and staff, and as such we won't be able to have alums visit the libraries. Because alumni borrowing cards can only be used in person to borrow physical materials, we're asking that you re-apply for an alum card in the future when we are able to have you come in! Once we are able to extend borrowing privileges again, alumnae/i of Bryn Mawr College's undergraduate and graduate programs who are in good standing with the library may request borrowing privileges at no cost by filling out the borrowing privileges form.

Alumnae/i borrowing does not include access to most electronic resources, including e-books, from off-campus, EZ-Borrow, or ILL. Alumnae/i have access to some library databases. See our Guide to Alumnae/i Resources.

Proxy and Projectionist Cards:
Professors may request proxy cards for research assistants who need to borrow materials on their behalf by filling out the borrowing privileges form. 

Student film projectionists who are hired to screen films for courses may request a projectionist borrowing card by filling out the borrowing privileges form. Projectionist cards allow projectionists to check out reserve DVDs for more than the typical 3-hour loan period.
