Retired Faculty and Staff Borrowing

You are eligible for borrowing privileges if you are:

  • A retired Western faculty member with less than five years of service
  • A retired Western staff member

Off-campus access to online databases and resources ends upon retirement. On-campus access is available with a one-day guest pass you can request at any service desk. Your library account will continue for one year after your retirement date unless updated at any service desk.


Western faculty, librarians and archivists who attain emeritus status continue to have the same borrowing privileges. This includes access to online resources and other library services.


To borrow items, present your Western ONECard at any service desk.
