What Libraries services and resources do Purdue retirees have access to?

Purdue retired faculty and staff are welcome to use Purdue University Libraries. You can:

  • Visit the Libraries. Please check Libraries Hours and Directions.
  • Check out books. Please bring your Purdue ID. If you do not have a PUID as a retiree, you will want to visit the Purdue ID office.
  • Use the Libraries’ online databases and journals on-campus.
  • Ask reference questions though our Ask a Librarian service.

If you are an official retiree or emeritus faculty, you have the privileges above as well as access to Interlibrary Loan services, Personal Delivery and PurdueBorrow privileges, and being able to access the Libraries’ online databases and journals off-campus using your Purdue Career Account credentials. More information about off-campus access.

If you do not know your retirement status, please contact Purdue HR.

If you have any questions or need help at the Libraries, don’t hesitate to Contact Us.
