UC Berkeley Library

I'm a visiting scholar at UCB. How do I apply for library privileges?

Visiting Scholars must receive official appointments with a UC Berkeley Department or Organized Research Unit, and register with the Visiting Scholars and Postdoc Affairs (VSPA) Program. The University Services Fee for registering as a Visiting Scholar is $500. After registering with VSPA, the valid registration card should be taken to the Library Privileges Desk (Doe Library, floor 1) to obtain a Library Card.
