You qualify as an alumnus if you completed four or more credits at U o f T, but are no longer a current student. As an alumnus, you access the library differently than when you were a student.
You can access our ebooks, online journals, and other electronic resources in person at a public access (LIRA) computer.
Our guide to Reading, Writing, and Publishing after you leave U of T has some useful tips on accessing online resources as an independent researcher.
Most libraries are open to the public for quiet study.
In Robarts, floors 1-5 and 8 are open to the public during regular hours. This does not include the extended, overnight hours.
Robarts stacks access
Most libraries have open book stacks, but Robarts stacks (floors 9-13) are restricted. You can request materials from the stacks at the Loans Desk or get access with:
- Your TCard from when you were a student
- Alumni ID card if you lost your TCard
- Alumni reader card
- Alumni research reader card
- OISE alumni card
