Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! Wondering what Columbia library privileges you'll have after graduation? Here's the scoop:
Your Columbia UNI and password will continue to give you electronic access to library resources for a grace period of about 6 months after graduation (assuming you were registered during the spring semester). The Library Information Office (LIO) encourages you to continue to use your UNI during the grace period for all eresource access (electronic databases, ebooks, ejournals), and after this time, you may obtain an alumni ID card through LIO. The cost is $5 payable with Visa, MasterCard or personal check (cash is not accepted). Borrowing privileges may be purchased for $30 per month.
