Borrowing / Applying for a Library Card

All visitors are welcome to use library materials in-house.  Connecticut residents, members of the UConn Alumni Association, registered students and faculty of the CT State University System or the CT Community Technical College systems, and spouses or domestic partners of UConn faculty or staff can apply for a Community Borrowers card which allows users to borrow up to 25 books at a time.  For more information, including how to apply, see https://lib.uconn.edu/services/borrowing/community-borrower-program/

Online Resources

Members of the public are welcome to use any of our resources at any UConn campus library. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own laptop or device and connect to UConn’s guest network http://wireless.uconn.edu/uconn-guest/ as the availability of public computers is limited. Due to licensing restrictions, there is no off-campus online access to our subscription journals and databases for community members or the general public.

Printing / Copying / Scanning

Scanning is available as a free service at all campus libraries.  Scans can be sent as an email or saved to a USB drive.

 
The Library does not have printing/copying services for visitors without a UConn ID/Husky One Card.  Save all work to a USB drive or email as an attachment.
