USD alumni can gain limited access to Copley Library materials by presenting a University of San Diego alumni card, which can be obtained from the alumni office in the Degheri Alumni Center. Alumni privileges allow checkout of five books at a time, but do not allow remote access to databases. For further information consult our loan policies for alumni and guests.
Special Patron cards may be offered to visiting faculty from other colleges and universities with a valid, current faculty ID card from the home institution. Members of religious communities and clergy are also eligible for Special Patron cards. Remote access to databases is not allowed with the Special Patron card.
Copley Library does not offer patron cards, book checkout, or remote access to databases to the general public.
