Using the Library during COVID-19
During the pandemic, many of the library services are being offered in new ways. To find the latest information on course reserves, book returns, 24/7 online help, and more, visit the Library COVID-19 portal, which provides up-to-date information.
Retirees may obtain a library card during the shelter in place by:
- Obtain a retiree ID card from the UC Berkeley Retirement Center.
- Send a photo of your retiree ID card, full name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number to email@example.com to initiate a library account.
- Remote access to licensed electronic resources such as journals and databases is available with this card.
