Individual fee-based privileges are available for Los Angeles-area residents at the rate of $125.00 for 6 months. Corporate privileges are available to Los Angeles-area businesses for $300.00 for 6 months. The USC Libraries reserve the right to determine whether applicants qualify for individual or corporate privileges.

Students, faculty, and staff from select local colleges and universities may apply for a reduced fee at the rate of $25.00 for 6 months for currently enrolled students, and $50.00 for 6 months for currently employed faculty and staff. All applications are subject to review for approval.

Fees must be paid by check, money order, or credit card, and privileges are not granted until after the payment has cleared. Individuals must apply for borrowing privileges in person at the Doheny Memorial Library. They may do so by presenting a photo ID, completing a Library Card Request Form, and paying the appropriate fee. Additional identification may be required. Students and faculty must show proof of current affiliation at their institutions.

Corporations may request privileges in writing by mailing a letter on corporate letterhead. The request should acknowledge full responsibility for the library account, and designate a specific individual who will be responsible for adherence to library policies. The application procedure must be repeated each semester, although borrowers in good standing may have their privileges extended immediately. Extension of privileges is never permitted if there are outstanding fines, bills for replacement, or stops on the borrower’s account
