Become an Alumni Borrower

UTSA Alumni can receive borrowing privileges by becoming a member of the UTSA Alumni Association and bringing the membership card to JPL or the Downtown Library to set up an account. It is not enough to be an alumnus; you must join the Alumni Association to obtain library privileges. A Library Account will give you borrowing privileges; database access is available only in person with the use of a guest computer.

In addition, the TexShare program allows non-UTSA affiliated visitors to borrow material in person through participating public and academic libraries. Visit the TexShare website for more information.
