Q: I am the spouse of a Yale faculty member/student/employee and I received my spousal Yale ID card. Do I have library privileges?
Answered by: Laura Sider

Yes, you do receive library privileges free of charge with your spousal Yale ID card. Please bring your card to the Sterling Memorial Library service desk during business hours. It should take about five minutes to set up your account.

You may take out up to 50 items at a time with your spousal ID card. Some restrictions apply.

You are not eligible for Borrow Direct, Interlibrary Loan or Scan and Deliver Services.

Your spousal privileges expire on June 30th each year. Please stop by on or around June 30th to extend your library access and update your account information. We do need to verify that your spouse is still an active member of the Yale community.
