Library for Life - Services for Alumni

Welcome, Alumni! 

Together with the College of Charleston Alumni Association, College of Charleston Libraries is pleased to provide the following services for alumni.

Library Access

Alumni are welcome to access the library and use any of our collections in the building during our regular hours. Email library@cofc.edu to request an appointment to obtain an Alumni Access Card. The appointment confirmation is required for entrance. 

Computers and Scanners

Bring your laptop, tablet, or other mobile device and connect to our cofc-guest wireless network.  You may also visit the Access & Instruction Desk on the first floor of Addlestone Library to use our affiliate desktop computers.  In addition, a free walk-up scanner is available in the first-floor copy room which allows users to scan documents or photos and upload them to email, flash drive, or mobile device.

Databases

Alumni who have been issued an Alumni Computer User Access card can use most library databases in-person at Addlestone Library. Off-campus database access is not available to alumni. Some database licensing agreements do not permit on-campus guest access.

To schedule an appointment to obtain an Alumni Computer User Access Card, contact the Access & Instruction Desk using our Ask Us service during regularly scheduled hours.

Books

Alumni may receive book borrowing privileges by joining the Friends of the Library.  Lifetime Alumni receive complimentary Friends of the Library cards by presenting their Lifetime Alumni cards at the Access & Instruction Desk.  Alternatively, alumni near and far may request books through interlibrary loan at their local public library.
