Who can borrow

Current CMU students, faculty, and staff use their CMU ID to borrow materials.

CMU alumni and CMU special patrons can purchase and use a Special Patron card to borrow materials. For Fall 2020, CMU alumni and special patron borrowing and facility visits are suspended due to reduced pandemic operations. We hope to resume these services soon.

Reciprocal borrowing accounts for local/regional University affiliates, including the University of PIttsburgh and PALCI members, are not being issued at this time. Please contact your college or university library for assistance locating library materials.

Students enrolled in Special Programs (Pre-college, Baginski, etc) can borrow materials. Some restrictions do apply.
