Using OU Libraries After Graduation

Any alumnus of the University can purchase an Alumni Association Membership card for a variable annual membership fee at the Alumni Office, which allows book checkout privileges. 

Present your alumnus card and a photo ID at the main circulation desk at Bizzell Memorial Library, and you will be allowed to borrow up to 30 books for 30 days, with 5 renewals. Your card is good for one year unless you have purchased a life-time membership, and you are subject to the same fines as undergraduates. We do not provide off-campus access to databases to alumni, but you may apply for a temporary ID to use these databases in the library building.
