Reference assistance and on site use of library resources is available to all Coastal Alumni. For 150 days after graduation, graduates retain full access to the Library and all its resources not requiring an individual log in. After 150 days, graduates can continue to use these services by registering with the library.
With registration, you will get an Alumni Library Card. The registration form is available online. Return the completed form to the security office, where you may be asked for picture ID (e.g., driver’s license) to verify identity. The Alumni Card must be presented when checking out materials.
As a registered alumnus, a maximum of 5 items can be checked out at one time. Materials circulate for a period of 2 weeks, and are renewable one time. Material can be renewed online, if before the due date, or in person at the library.
Materials that have not been returned or renewed within 3 weeks of their due date will be treated as lost. An invoice will be sent for the replacement cost of the book plus processing fees. Any outstanding bills will result in suspension of borrowing privileges. Materials needed for reserve or requested by faculty or students are subject to being recalled at any time and must be returned immediately.
Alumni who have registered may also request material through Interlibrary Loan.
