Alumni of the Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, and Harvard School of Public Health may apply for borrowing privileges by completing the Special Borrower Card Application form. Access is not automatic; alumni must apply for a Special Borrower card. This form can also be picked up at the Countway Circulation Desk. Alumni/ae are not eligible for remote access to electronic resources.
The completed form should be brought to the Countway Circulation Desk together with the $15 application fee or the $5 renewal fee, where a photo will be taken of the borrower. Applicants must show government-issued photo ID as proof of identity when having their photo taken. In general, IDs take about a week to be processed and are then held for pick-up at the circulation desk. Items cannot be borrowed until the ID is processed and picked up (access passes are available to those without access to the library until IDs are ready).
