  1. I am alumni of The College of Charleston, am I allowed to use the library free of charge? If so, how would I find my username and password? If not, what can I do to use them?

  2. Alumni are welcome to use the physical and online contents of the library in our building free of charge. Off-campus access to online materials is not available. Book borrowing privileges are available by joining the Friends of the Library.
