Library Resources for Alumni

Borrowing library materials

Wesleyan alumni may obtain a library card from the Olin Library Circulation Office Room 115. Hours of the circulation office are Monday - Friday 9am-5pm (year-round) and Saturday 10am-5pm (during the academic year only).  Alumni library cards must be renewed each year.

Alumni library cards permit borrowing of Wesleyan's circulating materials, but do not permit interlibrary loan or CTW borrowing.
