Services for University of Sydney Alumni

Library membership and borrowing information

University of Sydney alumni are eligible, for a small annual fee, to borrow from the University of Sydney Library. Students completing their studies in Semester 2 2008, and all future graduates, are entitled to 12 months of Alumni Library membership at no cost.

Your Library card entitles you to:

  • Borrow from any University of Sydney Library.
  • Borrow items for 8 weeks from most collections.
  • Borrow as many items as you need. There is no limit on the number of concurrent loans.
  • Renew your loans, provided the item has not been recalled from loan.

You are blocked from borrowing when your fines reach $25.00. You can keep track of your loans, and pay fines via MyLoans.

To obtain a borrower's card you will need to:

  • Provide proof of graduation i.e. academic transcript or graduation papers.
  • Provide suitable identification, such as a driver's licence.
  • Pay a fee of $80 (GST inclusive) for 12 months membership.
  • Fill out and submit a borrower card application form.
