My Carolina Alumni Benefits

Members of the My Carolina Alumni Association can borrow print materials, make Interlibrary Loan requests and access alumni versions of select databases. Local members can also visit University Libraries locations for additional access to online resources.

Using Your Benefits

Visit the Circulation Desk in Thomas Cooper Library to have your membership card barcoded. A photo ID is required.

Borrow Library Materials

Allowed up to 5 print or audiobooks at a time for 4 weeks with unlimited renewals. Fines for late items are $0.25 per day.

Interlibrary Loan Requests

When the library doesn't have a copy of the book you want, make a request to borrow it from another library. Members can have up to 3 active ILL requests at one time.

Access Alumni Databases

Online access is limited to alumni versions of select databases. Learn more and login for access through My Carolina. Due to licensing restrictions, it is not possible for alumni to have off-campus access to library subscription resources.

On-Campus Access to Resources

Visitors to Thomas Cooper Library can access library subscription resources for research. Ask for login assistance at the Research Help Desk during staffed hours. See the Computer Use Policy for visitors for additional details.
