Yes. Community Borrower cards are available to Connecticut residents; registered students and faculty of the CT State University System or the CT Community Technical College systems; Adjunct faculty and spouses or domestic partners of UConn faculty or staff.

There is a 25-book limit. Books are loaned for 30 days. Journals do not circulate. Please present your Community Borrower Card each time you check-out books or make use of other resources.. Borrowers may use the online Request Service to request items from any UConn campus library. However full use of InterLibrary Loan services is not permitted.
All borrowers, except Boston Library Consortium users, may renew books twice unless items are requested by another borrower. Renewal can be done online, in person at the library, or over the telephone at (860) 486-2518.
As a Community Borrower you may not recall books, but you may request a book be held for you upon its return. Recalling a book that is checked out is a service provided only for faculty, students and staff of the University. It is very important that you return any recalled books promptly. Borrowers who are temporarily unable to respond to recall notices should make prior arrangements with the iDesk.
