Gleeson Library offers a FREE Gleeson Alumni Special Borrower card to individuals that graduated from USF within the last 12 months. Please enjoy a year of access with borrowing privileges as you set out into the world to further the mission of USF.
Because of the pandemic, we’re extending this offer to individuals that graduated from USF within the last 24 months.
Qualifying alumni should apply for this offer in person at the library. (Please note that student library privileges are active through the end of the inter-session following the semester graduated; for our very recent graduates, we recommend waiting to apply for this offer until after your student library privileges have expired.) After processing the application at the library, the OneCard office will issue the Gleeson Alumni Special Borrower card.
The card will be valid for one year, after which you will be welcome to renew at the standard Gleeson Alumni Special Borrower rate. The Gleeson Alumni Card is valid only at Gleeson Library and borrowing is only for Gleeson Library materials. Databases may only be accessed from within the Library.
