  4. Cards are valid ONLY at UH-Main (and branches), UH-Clear Lake, and UH-Downtown libraries.

  5. Privileges are non-transferable and non-refundable.

UH (main campus) alumni are welcome to use the UH Libraries electronic resources from within the M. D, Anderson Library or any of its branches. Contracts and licensing agreements prohibit us from making these resources available remotely. Selected electronic resources are available off-campus to alumni.

Both the Houston Public Library (HPL) and the Harris County Public Library (HCPL) provide remote access for their card-holders to many of the same databases that are available at UH. See the HPL and HCPL sites for lists of their available databases and how to access them.
