Emeritus & Retired Faculty

Library Card & Borrowing Privileges

  • Bring your current SJSU Tower Card to the Circulation Desk at King Library to be issued a library card if you don't already have one. Your current SJPL card will work but will need to be upgraded to emeritus faculty status.
  • Create a PIN (Personal Identification Number) if you have not already done so in order to check out books and access databases.
  • View and manage My Account for a list of materials checked out to you, to renew any of your materials, check on the status of requested items, and more.
  • Interlibrary Services requests can be made under How do I?

Library books can be checked out for the semester. Sound recordings can be checked out for a week. Faculty loans are subject to recall when there are requests for the materials.

Use Library Resources from Off Campus

Emeritus and retired faculty enjoy the same library priveleges as current faculty. Anything that is unavailable through the King Library or the San Jose Public Library can be requested through either Link+ or Interlibrary Loan.

Emeritus & Retired Faculty Cubicle

A cubicle is available in Library Administration on the fourth floor for use during regular Library Administration business hours, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. The space is equipped with a desktop computer, laptop connections, a telephone — and proximity to assistance is at hand.
