Library Services for Visitors: CSU Alumni

In addition to supporting the instructional and research needs of the CSULB faculty, students and staff, the University Library also fills a role as a community resource and as such provides a variety of services to visitors.

CSU Alumni

Required identification: CSU Alumni Association card.

Alumni from any California State University campus are provided library privileges upon presentation of their CSU Alumni Association card and registration at the Library Circulation Desk. These library privileges include:

  • Loan period for books from the general collection for 21 days; 4 renewals allowed (if there's no recall).
  • Loan period for media materials (audiocassettes, compact discs, videos, and DVDs) is 7 days ; 1 renewal allowed.
  • Item renewal in person or electronically (via My Library Card).
  • Access to special list of unrestricted databases.
  • Maximum 10 item checkout.

Note on Applying for a Library Card

While we strive to create accounts on demand, a supervisor must be available to create the account and technological issues may result in a delay.  There may be times when we cannot issue new library accounts. When applying for a library card, be sure to ask for a Circulation Supervisor at the front desk.  Thank you for your patience in this matter.

In order to apply for an account, you must provide your Social Security number.
