More about Alumni Borrowing cards

Getting your card

  • Your card will be mailed to the address you provide.
  • You will be able to borrow items once you have received the card.
  • If you intend to visit from out of town, please contact us in advance to clarify which privileges may be extended to you.  Please email lib-desk@uic.edu or call (312) 996-2724.

Note: Please double check your address in your application.  If your card is returned to us as undeliverable, you may not be eligible to reapply.

Renewing your card

  • Your card is good for a lifetime, but you will need to update your address and contact information periodically.
  • Bring your Alumni Borrowing card and current photo ID when you come to the library to borrow materials.

Your card responsibilities

  • You are expected to update your card if your mailing or email address changes and show proof of identity and address.
  • Your card can only be used at the Library of the Health Sciences-Chicago and the Richard J. Daley Library.
  • You may be billed for overdue or lost items and your library borrowing privileges will be suspended for failure to adhere to Library policies.

Using databases

There is no off-site access to UIC databases but you are welcome to use them at a library location.

Requesting materials

We cannot offer I-Share or Interlibrary loan services to alumni at this time. Alumni can order documents from the UIC Library collection for a fee.
