Borrowing Privileges

Holders of current SUNY-Downstate ID cards:

Register online on the library website or at the Access Services Desk for borrowing privileges during regular Circulation Desk hours. At the Circulation Desk you will be asked to fill out a library registration form and your SUNY-Downstate ID card number will be entered into our computers. A profile will be created for you based on the information provided on the registration form.

Individuals who are not holders of current SUNY-Downstate ID cards:

Library subscriptions are available at a cost of $300 per year or any part of a calendar year where the cost is prorated quarterly. Inquire at the Circulation Desk, Monday Friday, 9am-5pm.

Holders of current SUNY-Downstate ID cards seeking access to other libraries:

Alternate access to other libraries will be arranged by request and by appointment. Contact the Head of Access Services, Monday Friday, 9am-5pm at 718-270-7404 or at the Circulation Desk.

Please note that not all SUNY ID cards enable library privileges. Please contact the Head of Access Services or the Assistant Director of Resource Management during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm) should any questions arise.
