Q: I am the spouse of a faculty member/employee/student at Yale University. Can I sign up for library privileges?
Answered by: Laura Sider
Fall 2020

Access to Yale Library is limited to current Yale students, faculty and staff who are authorized to be on campus. We hope to be able to extend borrowing privileges and building access to Yale spouses in Spring 2021.


Yes, you are entitled to free borrowing privileges as the spouse of a faculty member, staff member or student. Information about Yale ID cards for spouses is available from the Yale ID center.

Once you receive your Yale ID card, please visit the service desk at Sterling Memorial Library to set up your library account. The desk is open Monday-Friday from 8:30AM-4:30PM and on Saturdays from 10AM-4:30PM.

Please note: Spouses are not eligible for Borrow Direct, Interlibrary Loan, Scan and Deliver or VPN access to library resources.
