Sherrod Library Access for ETSU Retired Faculty and Staff

Retired faculty without emeritus status and retired staff with "Retiree" on their ETSU ID can borrow books and CDs in the Sherrod Library circulating collections using their ETSU ID. 

A Library Guest card, available to retirees for $5.00, allows the cardholder to borrow books and CDs and 

  • borrow DVDs.
  • log on to the ETSU WiFi network and any lab computer or printer/copier in the library.
  • access ETSU online resources from library lab computers.
  • pay for printing/copying using their LibGuest ID Buc$ account.

The $5.00 charge covers the cost of the card and puts $2.00 in the ID Buc$ account associated with the card.

Retirees and Library Guest cardholders are not allowed to 

  • access ETSU online resources from off campus or
  • request interlibrary loan service from the ETSU Libraries.
