Is my spouse or domestic partner able to use Columbia's libraries?
Spouses and domestic partners of Columbia students, faculty, and officers may use Columbia's libraries. Spouses or domestic partners of visiting scholars are not eligible for spousal privileges. Privileges may be purchased in the Library Information Office in room 201 Butler Library.
Students, faculty and staff of Teachers College and Barnard, should check with their institutions to see what privileges are available from their home institution for their spouses or domestic partners.
Spouses or domestic partners must provide proof of marriage or domestic partnership. Both parties must show up with proper government or state issued photo ID.
There is a $20 fee for borrowing and reader cards. Payments may be made by Visa, MasterCard, personal check or money order. The Library Information Office does not accept cash payment.
