Your alumni ID card is your library card. To check out materials from the Pepperdine University Libraries, you must present your valid alumni ID card at the Circulation Counter.
Please apply for your alumni ID card in one of three ways: visit the Office of Alumni Affairs in the Huntsinger Academic Center (HAC), call their offices at 310-506-6190, or go to the alumni website.
Please make sure to contact the Alumni office before your first visit to the library if you do not have an alumni ID card. No separate library card is issued.
Alumni members must agree to comply with all library regulations.
