Borrowing

Your campus ID card is your library card. The change to "Retired" status will update your card automatically, there is no need to contact a library service desk for activation. As a University of Saskatchewan retiree, the expiry date of your library services is automatically set to December 31, 2030.

U of S Retirees may
  • Borrow up to 150 regular loan items in person from any branch
  • Receive extended loans
  • Renew borrowed items twice, in person at the library or by logging into your Library Account
  • Request Interlibrary Loans (free of charge)

Recalled Loans     
You will be notified by email when an item you have borrowed has been recalled.  Recalled items must be returned within 7 days (new due date will be specified on the emailed recall notice) to avoid late fines of $2/day per item.

Reserve Materials    
Access to reserve materials varies among libraries.  Please check with the library location to see what access you may have.

Library Fines
Retirees are subject to the same library fines that apply to all other users. Find out more about avoiding and paying library fines.

Off Campus Access

Due to licensing agreements, the University Library is not able to provide retirees with off-campus access to most subscribed electronic databases and resources. Many electronic resources are accessible in the library for all walk-in patrons. If you are on campus, come visit us at one of our seven branches and access these resources using one of the library computers.
