Q. Can alumni borrow library materials?
There are two levels of alumni borrowing privileges for print materials:
- SAIS only borrowing privileges - $100 / year
- All JHU Libraries borrowing privileges - $200 / year
To request borrowing privileges, visit the SAIS Library Circulation Desk or email email@example.com.
Alumni borrowing has a 50-book maximum and does not include interlibrary loan or Borrow Direct. We regret that many of our e-book collections rely upon JHED authentication, on- or off-campus, so are not available to alumni. However, please ask a research librarian for help in identifying a local library that may have the materials you want.
New May SAIS MA graduates may extend their borrowing privileges through August of the same year upon payment of a $25 refundable deposit at the Circulation Desk. This applies to SAIS books only.
