Alumni Library Access – Borrowing Privileges

This form is not necessary to access online journals – you can already access online journals directly through the alumni app or on the web. No sign-up required. Additional journals can be accessed here if you have a CWL set up.

This form registers UBC alumni to use the UBC Library and gives them permission to borrow books.

Within 10 days of completing the form you will be issued an Alumni Library Barcode number which will appear in your alumni app in the ‘Verified’ tile. As soon as the number appears in your app you are approved to borrow books from the Library. When checking out books, please visit the library’s front desk as library staff will have to manually key in your barcode and verify your identity. If you want to use the Library’s online services like book-renewal requests you will be required to reset your PIN.
