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.
Alumni Access to JSTOR Database
USD alumni now have access to the JSTOR database by going to and entering their alumni login here.
JSTOR offers a high-quality, interdisciplinary archive to support scholarship and teaching. It includes archives of over one thousand leading academic journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as select monographs and other materials valuable for academic work.
Copley Library does not offer patron cards, book checkout, or remote access to databases to the general public.
