IB Student Library Privileges

Borrowing Privileges:

Students must be in IB programs approved by the Marx Library and complete the Courtesy Card application.

Library cards are provided at no charge and are valid for one academic year. Items from the Marx Library's circulating collection and government documents are eligible for check out. Students may check out up to 10 items at one time for two weeks at a time. One renewal is permitted. Late fines are $0.25/day and accounts are blocked when $10 of fines accumulate.

Borrowing privileges do not include:

  • Materials in the Biomedical Libraries, Mitchell College of Business Learning Resource Center, or the Marx Library's Instructional Media Center.
  • Free Interlibrary Loan service.
  • Remote access to USA-licensed databases.
  • "Hold" or "Recall" of materials checked out by USA faculty/staff.

Additional Information:

Library hours: Call 460-7028 or check the Marx Library homepage.

Photocopying and printing: $0.10/page. Purchase a print card (TRACcard) at the Circulation Desk (1st floor).

Remote access to USA-licensed databases: Not available. Only current USA students and employees are eligible for remote access to USA databases. Note: All Alabama citizens may use the Alabama Virtual Library.

The University of South Alabama Libraries reserve the right to limit access to the non-USA community, if necessary, in order to give priority service to USA faculty, students, and staff. We also reserve the right to revoke library cards of patrons who abuse their borrowing privileges.

Computers in the University Library

Public computers in the Marx Library are set up for internet access only and do not support flash drives. They do not have software like Microsoft Office installed. If you need to use a computer with such software, please bring a laptop.
