All official University of Michigan - Ann Arbor retired faculty and staff are eligible for free library borrowing privileges from the University Library. However, privileges must be initiated through a visit with Hatcher Graduate Library Circulation Services (Room 104, Hatcher Graduate Library North). Privileges must be renewed annually.
While all official U-M retirees are eligible for University Library borrowing privileges, off-campus access to electronic library resources is not included. (Emeriti faculty are considered members of the current departmental or school faculty and therefore have off-campus access to library resources).
Regardless of affiliation, any member of the public is welcome to visit the library in person and use almost all of our licensed electronic resources from guest workstations (see Public Access above).
