All students, faculty, and staff members at the University of Alabama may check out library materials. Students from some other colleges in Alabama have reciprocal borrowing privileges.


Community users may purchase a Borrower's Card for $25/year.

All patrons are required to provide proper identification. UA faculty, administrative staff, professional staff, and currently enrolled students who are listed in the automated system must provide an ACTion card without exception. Patrons from groups not listed in the automated system must provide current picture ID and official proof of status.
