Yale Library is open to current Yale students in residence, faculty and staff who are authorized to be on campus. We regret that we cannot extend library access to patrons outside of our immediate community. Information about Yale Library and our services is available here.
All fines for overdue, recalled, and lost Yale Library and Interlibrary Loan materials will be waived. If you accrue fines, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out this form for quick resolution.
Yale University retired faculty and staff are eligible for library borrowing privileges at no charge. These privileges are the same as those for employed faculty and staff with a few exceptions.

This card is used to borrow materials and gain access to library facilities after 6pm. Please contact the SML Service Desk at 203-432-1775 or email@example.com for more information on your specific privileges.
Previously employed Yale Faculty and Staff who retired from a different institution are not eligible as part of this program. Please consult the Visitors tab for information on what privileges are available.
