Harvard Alumni (HMS, HSDM, HSPH)

Alumni of the Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, and T.H. Chan School (HSPH) may apply for borrowing privileges. Access is not automatic; alumni must apply for a Special Borrower card. The cost of access is $15 for the first year and $5 for annual renewal. The fee is only payable by credit/debit card.

Alumni are not eligible for remote access to electronic resources.


Procedure for New Applicants and Renewals


We will process the application, explain activation and direct new applicants to the ID office, where a photo will be taken and a library card printed. We will also be happy to explain how to use our resources and answer any of your questions. Cards are valid for one year after issue. Please email with inquiries.
