How do alumni get access to the library and its resources?
Alumni of the Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) and the Graduate School of Medical Sciences (WCGSMS) are eligible for borrowing privileges at the library.
Alumni of the Medical College must present their alumni card at the Circulation Desk to register for borrowing privileges. Alumni cards are available through the Office of Alumni Relations: (646) 317-7419. Once you have completed the registration process, your alumni card will be barcoded and also serve as a library card. It must be presented to staff each time you enter the library, and at the Circulation Desk each time you wish to borrow material. Please have it with you whenever you come.
Alumni of the Graduate School must present a letter of verification from the Graduate School Office: (212) 746-6565, to library staff at the Circulation Desk. A separate library card will be issued to eligible alumni at that time. This card must then be presented to staff each time you enter the library, and at the Circulation Desk each time you wish to borrow material. Please have it with you whenever you come to the Library.
Please note that alumni privileges do not include Interlibrary Services, TripSaver Requests, off-site access, or access to any of our affiliated institutions.
